For football fanatics, the Super Bowl is the best day of the year. They go all out with tailgating parties and donning all their team’s paraphernalia. But, for some, that might not be enough. That’s why luxury travel agency Embark Beyond decided to create the ultimate themed package for fans that costs a whopping $720,000.
So, you’re probably wondering what nearly three-quarters of a million dollars gets you. Well, NetJets and Northrop & Johnson, the leaders in private aviation and luxury yacht charter have teamed up to offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans complete with private jet transfers, the best seats at the big game, unrivaled VIP access to the weekend’s biggest events and a world-class yacht charter.
“Most sports fans dream of going to the Super Bowl,” Northrop & Johnson COO, Daniel Ziriakus, told Departures. “But we’re taking that dream to new heights.”
You’ll start by traveling to Florida in a luxurious private jet for a three-night stay in an Oceanfront Residential Balcony Suite at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale—an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property. On game day, a car will take you the Hard Rock Stadium, where you’ll sit in the first 10 rows on the 50-yard line and have access to the VIP hospitality in the 72 Club.
While that’s already a dream-worthy experience, it doesn’t stop there. The trip will also include meeting some of the pro athletes, attending the MAXIM after-party and the NetJets VIP pre-party on Saturday night, which has featured past performers including Maroon 5 and Lynyrd Skynyrd. After the weekend of football fun, a private jet will whisk you off to the Bahamas, where a private yacht will cruise you around the Caribbean for four nights. In the end, a private plane will take you home.
“Through our partnership with Northrop & Johnson, we’re able to offer our Owners unparalleled experiences like this once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Super Bowl,” Patrick Gallagher, President of Sales and Marketing for NetJets, told us. “No other two companies can provide access to the world’s largest fleet of private jets combined with a luxury yacht charter from the leading full-service yacht brokerage and marketing agency, not to mention enviable seats to Super Bowl LIV.”
The full experience is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is from Friday, January 31, 2020, until Friday, February 7, 2020. Interested in booking? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
