After reporting an increasing number of listings, global vehicle classifieds company, Carmudi, has revealed that the first space shuttles are listed on its platform. Four different space ferries are already listed throughout its platforms in the UAE, Pakistan and Myanmar.

The space vehicles start from $28 million, for the oldest model from 1985. However, there are also newer models from 2013 for sale. All of them are said to be completely usable and work efficiently. As the runway charges are not included, customers have to pay extra money if they plan to make full use of their new vehicle.

Trusted dealers, ranging from Russia and the US to emerging markets, posted the listings. Their approach to enter this uncommon branch derives from the fact that space shuttles are becoming highly regarded as a reliable investment opportunity. According to one of the dealers, there are already serious requests for visits and even test drives, therefore the space ships are expected to be sold soon. Carmudi also plans to support this development and revealed that the required adjustments to its filter and search options will follow soon.

Dr Nod Riley-Truxman, chairman of the International Space Shuttle Trading Federation, says: “People need to learn that space shuttles are no longer a topic just reserved for astronauts and NASA engineers. With the growing interest, you can see that an increasing number of people are discovering the potential of the space shuttle market.”
