Gulfstream developed the long-range Gulfstream GIV as a re-engined (Tay 611-8), stretched fuselage derivative of the GIII offering higher MTOW and fuel efficiency and lower noise output. The cabin boasts extra length and is typically configured for 13. Wing modifications reduced cruise drag and helped stretch maximum range to 4,200nm.
