Cowboys owner Jerry Jones pays $250m for 360-foot yacht

by Andrea Zander

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has become the owner of a custom superyacht roughly the length of a football field, at 357 feet.

The yacht reportedly cost $250 million, approximately $110 million more than he paid for the NFL team in 1989.

It is named the “Bravo Eugenia” after Jones’s wife, Genie.

Dutch yacht builder Oceanco and naval engineering firm Nuvolari Lenard and Lateral Naval Architects developed the yacht.

Amenities include teak decking, two helipads, a full spa and gym, a garage for smaller boats and jet-skis. It has room for 14 passengers and a crew of 20. The 4,000 gross tonnage ship can hit 17.5 knots or 20 miles per hour.

It is not the largest yacht in the world. That title is owned by the Azzam, at 592 feet, 7 inches. And the second-largest yacht in the world, the 533-foot Eclipse, is owned by another sports tycoon, Roman Abramovich, a Russian-Israeli billionaire businessman, investor and politician, who owns the Chelsea Football Club, a Premier League football club in London.
