This Boeing jet is a luxury cruise ship for the sky

Crystal Air Cruises Boeing 777

This month, the boutique cruise line Crystal Cruises added a new vessel to its fleet.

But the vessel, named the Crystal Skye, isn’t the company’s traditional cruise ship, river boat, or luxury yacht. Instead, it’s a new Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner wide-body jet.

That’s right, you can now tour the world on board a private luxury jet courtesy of Crystal AirCruises.

“Crystal Skye beautifully complements all things Crystal, with its exclusively styled design and custom experience she will offer guests,” Crystal president and CEO Edie Rodriguez said in a statement. “As a global luxury traveller myself, I have been privileged to travel aboard some of the world’s finest aircraft, and there is nothing like Crystal Skye around the world.”

The Crystal Skye’s interior is the work of Greenpoint Technologies with the installation completed at its Moses Lake, Washington facility.

“Our goal for this program was to create a luxurious interior showcasing the elegant brand Crystal established with their cruise ships, yachts and riverboats,” Greenpoint Technologies executive vice president, Bret Neely, said in a statement. “It was amazing to see the combined core team come together to focus on Crystal’s guest experience, resulting in the beautiful and functional interior we see today.”

Crystal AirCruises, a subsidiary of leisure travel giant Genting Hong Kong, expects to deploy the Boeing 777 as both a flying cruise ship and as a private charter for the ultra wealthy, as well as corporations and sports teams.

The Boeing 777-200LR has a list price of about $A40 million and that’s before the millions of dollars Crystal poured into the interior conversion.

Here’s a closer look at the Crystal Skye.
