N50TC (29024 / 131) Boeing 737-700 BBJ at Luton 12/5/2017

N50TC Boeing 737-700 BBJ at Luton

This BBJ was one of the first 737 NGs off the line (Line No 131) and first flew in 1998. It was purpose built as a BBJ, not a conversion. Read the following sales description to see how it is furnished and speced.

This remarkable executive VIP aircraft was designed as thoughtfully as any aircraft could be. The director of maintenance who has extensive executive VIP aircraft experience has been with the aircraft since it was new and designed it for long term reliability and function. Some of the details that were implemented on S/N 29024 include a gravity based water system with capacity for 104 gallons of water. This simple system has proved to be very reliable while also taking up less space providing more storage room in the cargo hold. Another feature are water drip pans at each of the exits to prevent accumulation of water and the development of corrosion. Additionally, for ease of maintenance they had floor boards cut per STC at commonly accessed areas. This prevents the operator from needing large sections of the interior removed for some maintenance. Another unique stand out feature of this aircraft is the large in-flight accessible storage closet between the aft private bedroom suite and the adjacent conference room/bedroom. This is not a feature that is standard to all BBJs and it provides significant additional storage and a further sound barrier between sleeping quarters.

With a range of approximately 5,800 nautical miles with 8 passengers, this wide body executive class aircraft has the ability to complete long range trips with luxurious ease. It includes a 7 tank auxiliary fuel system. It also has a Hollingsead Cargo Fire Detection-Extinguishing system. The interior is configured with 12 taxi, take-off and landing certified passenger seats and convertible sleeping accommodations for up to 8 people. It is designed with a forward crew lavatory and rest area separated from the main cabin for privacy, a forward lounge including a combination of divans and single seats creating a very comfortable arrangement, a wet bar adjoining the large mid-cabin galley, a large mid-cabin lavatory and two private rooms as you move aft through the aircraft. The first private room is designed with two large divans that convert in to beds with an additional murphy style bed above the forward facing divan and the back cushion of the aft facing divan rises to create another bunk bed for a total sleeping capacity of 4 passengers. The owner also had this room designed for “his and her” sleeping with a privacy curtain that snaps in place dividing the room in half and there is a large conference table stored below the aft facing divan and can be easily deployed in flight. The room also includes a large LCD monitor.

The second private room in this aircraft is a full cabin-width stateroom with a large bed, an “occasional chair” by the window, cabin entertainment with a drop down monitor from the ceiling and a full cabin width master bathroom with a fully enclosed stand up shower.

The galley is fully equipped for fresh food preparation. The current owner almost always had fresh meals prepared in-flight as opposed to prepared catering. Galley equipment includes a stovetop, oven, microwave, refrigerator, cold storage and counter space as well as extensive additional storage.

Entertainment throughout the aircraft is provided by a comprehensive audio and video system with a DVD/CD player, several large LCD monitors and a video projection system in the forward lounge section. Voice communication is made possible through the Inmarsat SATCOM with five handsets located throughout the cabin.

This executive VIP configuration allows for unparalleled comfort and the interior cosmetics are in very good condition. The aircraft was last painted in 2007 and it shows very well inside and out. The interior was completed by Garrett/Jet Center and the empty weight is 95,112.7 pounds. The C-1 check was completed in April 2015 and the 12-year landing gear inspection was accomplished in 2012.
