Boeing BBJ Max 7
Best jet for: Unfettered globetrotting
Unarguably, the realm of private jets is filled with machines capable of flying long distances in total comfort. But most of the purpose-built jets can’t quite match the Boeing BBJ Max 7. Boeing’s Max versions are wholly modern machines, with high-efficiency power plants and digital cockpits. And the BBJ Max 7 — as well as its kin, the Max 8 and Max 9 — offers the all-new Genesis Cabin Concept, an interior finish that wouldn’t be out of place in an art gallery. The Max 7 variant, the first to market, boasts a range of 8,000 miles thanks to a flexible fuel-supply system. Pending variants come in with slightly lower ranges, but still above 7,000 miles. And space — well, you choose how you want it finished; it’s the ultimate blank slate. So, where do you want to go — and with how many? Have your BBJ Max 7 finished to your tastes.
