What if you wanted the most luxurious private jet and a superyacht and got both of them together?

The Skyacht One is essentially a ‘flying yacht’ — a luxurious private jet inspired by a yacht.

The marvel offers everything you can imagine – and some stuff you won’t have thought of – in one big flying palace.

SottoStudios first envisioned the concept back in 2016, and it attracted a lot of attention not long after.

It offers an almost unending amount of interior specifications — allowing you to customize almost every bit of it.

The jet’s interior is divided into five parts, with each part brimming with luxury.

Eddie Sotto, the experimental designer behind the concept, described it as a ‘yacht that can fly.’

And rightly so.

When you step towards the grand entrance, there’s a ‘Chartroom Entry’ with a wood-lined lounge and a planetary clock.

Further, there’s a conference room with leather seats and custom hardware made of brass, gold, and silver.

There’s also a main cabin, a master suite with a master bathroom, and a lot more.

Sotto built the yacht-like private jet on top of an Embraer Lineage 1000E as it offers a spacious interior, making it an ideal choice for the concept.

The Skyacht One might be the world’s most luxurious private jet, but it’s certainly not the biggest one.

There’s also a plane based on a superyacht and a superyacht with its own detachable airship.

So, which yacht is the Skyacht One based on?

The ‘Thunderbird’ yacht is the inspiration behind Sotto’s flying yacht.

Thunderbird’s classic wooden look breathes a new life in the Skyacht One.

If you really want to travel in the world’s most luxurious private jet, you would need to shell out $83 million to get one.

However, at the end of the day, this private jet/yacht remains a concept unless a billionaire decides to make it a reality.
