Taking a seat on a CoachWhip is a privilege granted only the exclusive club of people who demand excessive luxury and willingly pay more than its actual worth. Not bothered by this image, indeed encouranging it with slogans such as, "Get there ahead of the riffraff" and "Why pay less when you want more", this spaceline has claimed its obscure niche and has no reason to expect any competition soon.


As multi-billionaire and FurCorp heiress Magda DeMug grew weary of entertaining her demanding guests on numerous private space cruises, she founded CoachWhip Inc. as a pet project, to get some rest from the continuous festivities. As a start, she had made 12 replicas of her own CoachWhip, initially quite a unique cruise ship in that it sported amphibious capabilities akin to the Moray while equipped to treat some 100 passengers to luxury conditions, but the appeal of this experience was soon in demand from a much larger group than DeMug's inner circles. Finding that there were gross amounts of money to be made on what was initially no more than a silly idea, CoachWhip Inc. was steadily expanded to galactic service.


It is sometimes maliciously said that DeMug's reasons for founding the spaceline were far more selfish than the official version. Upset with the increasing frequency of piracy and the huge apparatus of security this necessitated, and how large groups of escorts would always spoil the view, the first dozen replicas were intended as decoys to confuse criminals who would closely observe her movements and stage coordinated assaults, intentionally risking the lives of her dearest friends. This allegation is refuted by company officials who point to the unusually large fleet of custom escort Sidewinders that always accompany CoachWhips, as evidence to the contrary.
