Hey... One can always dream...
I have day dreamed about this so many times...
Let's say you're a multi-billionaire CEO of a multinational company, and a plane lover (A prerequisite). Your company's HQ is in NYC, and you have offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, and South Africa...
Since you're such a good CEO and they decided to spend $200 million to buy your own private jet... what would you choose?
(You can only choose planes that's currently in production)

777-200 of course. With a little bit of customization needed. I would sport a nice tall pair of winglets and would deffinately have to have a full lounge/bar, a large theater room, maybe a gentlemans club, a few suites, couple of offices, and a spa and sauna room...a bit overboard I guess, but if I could afford it I would do it.

A BBJ3, or as I would call it, the 757-200LR. It would (does) have better airport performance than the BBJ. Design it so that the entire cargo area would hold fuel. (Hell, it would be a bitch to get bags in there without a loader anyways) Winglet equipped of course. 8,500 nm range.

Their not jets and there certainly not in production but I'd love to commission someone to build me a zepplin (helium filled of course) or a Boeing 314 clipper (with turboprops), they would take a while to get you to where you want to go but the ride would be enjoyable and there would be no plane in the air with more style.
Otherwise I'd settle for an A332.
25 Matt27: I would go for an A330-200. About 30-50 seats would be good, then I would need a TV-room, bathroom (w/toilet and a shower), a bedroom and a bar with a
