Id probably get a little yacht. Enough room for a few trays of beer, a fridge, a hob a big bed a shower and a place to keep the fishing rods.

How much will that set me back.

That's why I don't get the appeal of a private jet. You still have to go through passport controls, the only substantive difference is you don't have to queue, and have slightly more comfort on board (these benefits are hardly worth millions of euro).

Give me a yacht bobbing on the azure blue waters off Malta or Antibes, or Lough Derg, any day.
I’d rather jump into a GV in Dublin airport, 2 hours 15 I’m in Nice and then sail around the Cote D’Azur into Villefranche...

Way cheaper than a super yacht and way faster. OK not exactly a lot of room for pneumatic dolly birds in bikinis from central casting, but that's why you make sure you're mates with someone with a yacht. Job done.

For sure, but if you had to choose between a private flight or the yacht, would you really choose the former?

It would be a sailing ship for me crewed by Swedish and South American women who had the morals of alley cats

Get one of these instead. Plenty of room for bikini clad dolly birds.

I dunno, it’s a tough choice, but nice one to have to make. Hopefully early next year it might be Qashqai vs Hyundai Tuscon.. bout as close as I’m getting.

Qashqai handles like a superyacht.

I’ve had two and really liked them. Never a flicker of an issue, I’d have zero complaints... I’m probably sticking with them. My folks have a Tuscon but it’s the executive model which is out of my reach. Beautiful car and seriously seriously comfy but I’m thinking Qashqai for me again.

Get you a P-38 if you want range and dolly bird transport.

I would get something like this, best of both worlds, although I would get a turbine version and not a radial engine.

Flew across the North Sea in one of those many years ago, the bikini clad dolly birds would freeze to death and be deaf by the time you got to your destination.
