Cowboys Owner Jones Reportedly Buys $250M Yacht

11 January 2019

It remains to be seen whether the Dallas Cowboys will win the Super Bowl this year, but owner Jerry Jones has already scored big.

Everyone knew Jones had insane money - with a net worth estimated at $6.8 billion by Forbes - but he just spent $250 million on a yacht that's longer than an NFL football field.

So imagine an entire 100-yard football field moving as fast as the Cowboys star running back, and that's what Jones has in his fancy 360-foot yacht.

Reportedly built in the Netherlands and launched in 2017, the vessel was delivered by Dutch shipyard Oceanco after going through trials on the North Sea.

"The interior is a sophisticated, elegant, contemporary design that features light maple wood and white pearl lacquer with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony", according to an Oceanco press release. She also has a large spa that includes a sauna, steam room, massage room, plunge pool and rain shower.

The yacht - named Bravo Eugenia after Jones' wife, Eugenia (better known as "Gene") - reportedly can sail at a top speed of 17.5 knots, equivalent to about 20 miles per hour. "Also, on the lower deck are a complete gym and a generous and luxurious Beach Club".

Bravo Eugenia's cabins reportedly can accommodate an estimated 14 passengers and an estimated 20 crew members. And aside from the over-the-top amenities, his new toy is also environmentally friendly-as far as yachts can be such a thing.

Now, three decades later, the team is worth $5 billion.

As of January 2019, Forbes pegged Jones' net worth at $6.8 billion.
