Congratulations! Gulfstream G700 earned a 2020 International Yacht & Aviation Award for the industry flagship’s all-new seat design. The Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600 received the same accolade in 2018.  “I am proud of the Gulfstream team that worked diligently to build on our excellence in cabin comfort,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Behind this award is a team of the industry’s most talented engineers, designers and craftspeople, who combined innovation and artistry to create a seat that is both comfortable and beautiful. It’s a perfect complement to the Gulfstream Cabin Experience that enhances wellness and increases productivity.”

The G700 Classic Seat features a timeless wingback silhouette updated with intricate details and curves that reflect the overall G700 cabin design and architecture. The Classic Seat was designed for increased customization with side and back paneling that customers can choose to accent with veneer, paint, leather or textiles. Customers collaborate with Gulfstream designers and artisans to choose their materials and explore the multitude of design possibilities available through stitching, piping and other personalization.

To create the award-winning seats, Gulfstream’s research and development team started with a clean-sheet design that they matured through meticulous modeling and extensive comfort studies, resulting in organic, anatomical shaping that enhances comfort for all body types. Artisans at Gulfstream’s seat shop bring the designs to life with customized bolstering, trimming and hand-stitching, ensuring the durability, beauty and comfort of the G700 Classic Seat.

Introduced in October 2019 as the business-jet industry’s new flagship, the G700 features the most spacious cabin and can fly farther faster than any other business aircraft. The G700 can be configured for up to five living areas and includes the industry’s only ultragalley with passenger lounge or crew rest; a six-place dining or conference area; and a grand suite. The Gulfstream Cabin Experience on the G700 comprises 20 panoramic windows, 100% fresh, never recirculated air, the lowest cabin altitude and ultraquiet noise levels.
