Floyd Mayweather, a professional boxing promoter and former professional, who won three US Golden Gloves championships, and the US national championship at featherweight, has just purchased a new private jet, $60 million Gulfstream G650, known as AirMayweather.
The former fighter, who has an estimated net worth of around $700 million, purchased the jet for his 41st birthday. The Gulfstream G650 has a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85 and flies 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers nonstop with eight passengers. Los Angeles to London, for example, is more than 30 minutes faster, and New York to Tokyo is an hour closer compared to other large-cabin aircraft.
The jet features an 8-foot 6 inch/2.59 meter-wide cabin, the largest in its class, comfortably accommodating 19 passengers. It also includes large Gulfstream panoramic windows, each 28 by 20.5 inches/71 by 52 centimeters, which allows plenty of sunlight into the cabin, even in the galley. Every window has been repositioned higher on the fuselage to maximize viewing comfort.
The Gulfstream G650 also enables travelers to stay connected, whether with internet options, two multichannel satellite communications systems and a wireless local network that provides onboard printing and phone service. Dual media servers, high-definition video source equipment and a cabin audio system also allow passengers to stay on top of their business, even at Mach 0.925.
The Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS) synchronizes with Apple iOS or select Google Android smartphones and tablets to offer touch-screen control for temperature, lighting, window shades and entertainment options. Apple iPod touches or Google Android devices are provided as cabin controls, but GCMS also can be saved to a free mobile application on a passenger’s iPhone, iPad or Android device, which enables passengers to save and recall preferences for a subsequent flight.
According to Robert Goyer in Flying Magazine, “The G650 is the biggest, fastest, most luxurious, longest range and most technologically advanced jet – by far – that Gulfstream has ever built. And they did it all on schedule while developing the brand-new super midsize G280 at the same time. To say that Gulfstream is on a roll is an understatement.”
Floyd Mayweather recently shared his new purchase, which is embossed with the logo of The Money Team, with his 20 million Instagram. The record-breaking 50-0 former fighter is one of the richest athletes on the planet, which has earned him the nickname “Money Mayweather“.
