BBJ is actually the company that builds the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ, a Boeing Company). Boeing sells modified B737-700NGs to be made into large, ultra-long range business jets.

So, "BBJ" is not an option for the 737.

The BBJ may look like a 737-700 with winglets, but underneath, it's an entirely different bird.

It has the wing of the 737-800 to carry the extra weight. It has extra auxilary fuel tanks in the cargo hold. Of which the customer can choose the number of tanks. After the customer takes delivery of the aircraft, the customer is responsible for the interior completion of the BBJ. Versus an airline, when they take delivery of a standard airliner, the passenger interior is already completed.

The BBJ is still assembled on the standard 737NG line though. Externally, apart from the corporate colour schemes, you are correct.....there is little difference from the standard 737NG, particularly as the 737/738 is offered with winglets now.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Actually, the BBJ1 is quite a bit different from the 737-700. The BBJ1 has a 737-800 wing and undercarriage, as well as a HUD as standard (at least now) and the aux fuel tanks. The BBJs is very like the 738, although it has the upgraded navs and fuel tanks. All new BBJs have the winglets as standard.
