Famous for their outrageous prices, luxury sail barges are a product of the Ubrikkian Industries, who own all the manufacturing and marketing rights for these transports. Ubrikkian's customers are rich individuals, from crime lords to wealthy Imperial officers, who want to own the vessel predominately for bragging rights. Though customizable, the barge is an easily recognizable status symbol due to two, unique qualities shared by all models: extravagant comfort and overwhelmingly large sails.
Though a luxury sail barge is usually propelled by powerful repulsor lifts, the huge sails catch wind quite functionally and make for a more nostalgic feel or leisurely pace to traditional travel. The barge can reach a top speed of 100 km/h if needed, but pilots typically keep the vessel moving below the maximum. The operating height of the barge is fairly low, normally some 10 meters above ground. This feature restricts the barge to flat, expansive surfaces.
One of the most common alterations made to luxury sail barges is to decorate the rooms, which cater to the flamboyant tastes of the owners and are used to provide entertainment to the more privileged guests on board. The barge has multiple levels that contain dining rooms, gambling halls, bedrooms and an assortment of other rooms. It also features a convenient docking bay for smaller vehicles that is accessible from either side of the barge, and many storage compartments for food, slaves and droids. With a recommended capacity of 80 people, the luxury sail barge can accommodate much more if the host cares less for comfort than for utilized space. Fitted specifically for extravagance and comfort, a luxury sail barge is the top of the line when shopping for vehicles although it remains a rarity as few can afford the very best.
