It is no news that sports persons, especially footballers, are paid big bucks and have the fanciest of luxury items. Name a luxury item that comes to your mind, and we bet they are proud owners of it! From humongous mansions to luxury premium watches, these swanky stars have it all. Mansions and luxury watches would still be premium items that could be affordable for a few. Here we are talking about a luxury that is only availed by a select few in the entire world, and a large chunk of those are sports celebs. We are talking about private jets! These sports stars love traveling in absolute style and comfort, and what’s better than your own personal jet. Nothing!
Let us look at some of the most expensive and swanky private jets owned by sports stars.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather
When you can change your middle name to “Money” there is very little doubt that you would be one of the richest people on the planet. Floyd Mayweather has a plush collection of some of the most premium cars in his garage but he does not stop there. The UFC fighter has not one but TWO private jets. His latest addition to the already appalling list of luxury vehicles is a 12-seater private jet.
From his journey being the top wrestler in the WWE, to sharing a wicked partnership with Shawn Michaels in the form of DX Generation, and now, being the COO of the WWE, Triple H is one superstar that has achieved it all. Triple H and his beautiful wife Stephanie have slowly become the backbone of the WWE with also garnering new talent from NXT. They travel to different locations like Orlando and Connecticut on a weekly basis. It only makes sense for the power couple to travel around in a private jet.
What’s better than owning a private jet? We’ll tell you, it is customizing it according to your preferences. Michael Jordan has done just that. The NBA star not only owns a stunning private jet but has also customized it to a design that is similar to the Air Jordan sneakers. Now, that’s how you fly in style!
One of the few baseball stars that own a private jet, Alex Rodriguez, recently upgraded his possession from the Lear Jet 60 to Gulfstream IV. The newer addition to the sports stars garage has a capacity to seat people and has double the mileage offering as compared to the older one.
In the world of tennis, Roger Federer is the renowned king of the court and it would be dearly unfair if the king did not have his own luxurious private jet. The tennis ace has earned this with his individual earnings and success. He has a staggering fortune of approximately $117 million.
We hope there are a few Indian sports celebs that join this list soon!
