Jerry Jones’ Jaw-Dropping New Yacht is Longer Than a Football Field

Jerry Jones’ Jaw-Dropping New Yacht is Longer Than a Football Field

Former Razorback and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took luxury relaxation to the next level by purchasing one of the largest yachts built in the Netherlands.

The Texas billionaire, who also got a present when the Cowboys won a playoff game over the weekend, reportedly spent about $250 million on the vessel.

Websites that cover the yachting industry report that Jones took delivery of a almost 360-foot, Dutch-built yacht on December 20 somewhere in Scandinavia. The lower deck encompasses a gym and a luxurious "beach club", a yachting term for the ship's waterside lounge.

Pascale Raymond, of UK-based Reymond Langton Design tasked with designing Project Bravo's interior, said her team worked with artists and craftsmen on the yacht's fabrics, furniture, and bespoke art.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram reports the ship is named Bravo Eugenia after his wife Gene Jones, while reports that it was delivered to Jones on December 20, just in time for Christmas. It can accommodate 14 passengers in addition to 20 crew members.

Jones is worth about $6.8 billion, according to Forbes.

Being an National Football League owner is nice work if you can get it.

When your name is Jerry Jones and you are the owner of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, chances are the gifts you purchase for yourself won't be made at your local mall. At the time, the 290-foot yacht, named Nirvana, was up for sale with a price tag of about $300 million.
