The Vision of the Skyacht TM One


What if a Yacht Could Fly?

The Vision of the Lineage 1000E SkyachtTM One

The Lineage 1000E, the largest aircraft in Embraer Executive Jets' fleet, is recognized as one of the top contenders for the best ultra-large executive jet. With the Skyacht™ One—an exclusive, highly customized version of its Lineage 1000E flagship — Embraer Executive Jets has teamed with SottoDesign Studios to develop an ultra-custom interior design theme , catering to flyers who seek a level of luxury and refinement that has, until now, been reserved only for the most impressive oceangoing yachts.

  • Skyacht™ One was created from a unique collaboration between internationally recognized experiential designer Eddie Sotto and Embraer Executive Jets
  • Based on Embraer Executive Jets' Lineage 1000E, an ultra-large luxury jet with a range of 4,600 nautical miles
  • After taking delivery of a green Lineage 1000E, the proud owner of the future Skyacht™ One aircraft will collaborate closely with Sotto Design Studios to personalize the aircraft down to the most exquisite interior and exterior detail and bring the Skyacht™ One vision to reality
  • The Skyacht™ One takes the private jet experience to a level never before accomplished

Much of the inspiration for the Skyacht™ One is a custom commission yacht called the Thunderbird built by master boat builder John Hacker in 1939 for George Wittell. Wittell wanted a powerboat for use at his Lake Tahoe home that matched his polished Douglas DC2.

Sotto is a master of creating experiential environments, with a list of impressive commercial and private commissions that explore the boundaries of fantasy and technology. 

Sotto’s is a refined, retro-themed aesthetic that brings together the best of Renaissance craftsmanship, the gravitas of the 19th-century steam age and the future-think of Disney’s Imagineering, where Sotto cut his teeth as its creative director. Sotto also reminds us that, according to Walt Disney, “It’s kind of fun doing the impossible.”

“So what if a yacht could fly?” Sotto asks. “Why should hand-made luxury only exist on your wrist, in an exotic car or on a yacht? With Skyacht™ One, ‘wow’ happens every time you see or touch something.”
