Businessman Denis O'Brien has decided to sell off his state-of-the-art Gulfstream jet for €60 million ($67.95 million). O’GaraJets in Atlanta is selling the Gulfstream G650 S/N 6032. There is a small Irish tricolour on the tail fin of the jet. O'Brien bought the aircraft when it was brand new in 2013. The plane has flown 1,734 hours since then, making 558 landings according to the O’GaraJets website.
It comes with an “extended” Gulfstream warranty and holds 15 passengers as well as a three strong crew. O'Brien is well known as a globetrotter, regularly visiting the Caribbean and the Pacific islands.
It can sleep up to six people 'comfortably', according to the video. There is a range of 7,000 nautical miles and a max ruise speed of 516 knots. . To fly it for an hour costs $5443 (€4,809).
The sale brochure says it is finished with: "Sandstone Leather Club Chairs, Belvedair Diana Seat Cushions, Swirl Walnut Burl Wood, Satin Silver Metal Hardware and Camel Carpeting."
It has a state-of-the-art entertainment system and electrically operated console tables and window shades. In the promotional video, a pilot on the plane captain Nick Robshaw reveals the plane was used for short-haul flights “hopping around Europe”. He adds that it normally flies around 900 hours a year which is “probably about double” what other Gulfstream aircraft can do. He said: "I can say hand on heart that we haven’t missed a trip for technical issues."
