A JET belonging to the Qatari royal family is up for sale — although it’s more like a flying mansion than plane.
The Boeing 747-8 comes complete with multiple of rooms and is decked out in a regal blue, white and gold colour scheme.
According to The Sun, the plane was originally intended for a whopping 467 passengers, but the royal family — led by the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani — took out most of the seating to maximise space so it now has seats for 76 passengers and 18 crew.
The plane has been listed for sale on aircraft sales site Controller, and has been flown for only 403.2 hours, which makes it relatively new.
There’s no starting price for the plane, but it’s been reported as being priced at a mind-boggling $555 million — and that’s without taking into account the bespoke interiors.
Inside, there’s plenty of room to spare. There’s a vast dining room-cum-boardroom with comfy blue airline chairs that seats 14 people.
There are also several lounges, including two separate downstairs and upstairs.
There’s a huge bedroom suite with a very luxurious-looking double bed. And 10 different toilets, kitted out in the same royal blue and gold colour scheme.
There’s even a medical centre on board — because when you’re this rich, why not?
Buyers are told to call up AMAC Aerospace in Switzerland if they fancy making a bid on the extravagant plane.
And while it’s a little outside most of our budgets, at least we can enjoy the pictures.
