Jerry Jones Bought A Lavish $250 Million Yacht

Jerry-Showing-Nothing-But-Support-For-Garrett-hero

Considering the Cowboys are now the most valuable sports franchise in the world with an evaluation of just under $5 billion, this boat has a lot to live up to.

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. It's the AT&T Stadium of super yachts and was delivered by Dutch shipyard Oceanco to the US billionaire just before the holiday season on December 20.

What do you think of the new ship? This thing is incredible to look at, let alone use whenever you feel like it.

Bravo Eugenia is 357 feet long. Dutch shipyard Oceanco built the hybrid-powered vessel. The yacht is powered by a hybrid propulsion system and has the capability of reaching a top speed of 17.5 knots, just a little over 20 miles per hour. For those of us not on the metric system, that means his yacht is almost 120 yards long, making it bigger than a football field.

The state-of-the-art yacht has to have a name, and the 76-year-old Jones made sure to please his significant other before the credit card bill came in the mail.

Oceanco and naval engineering firm Lateral rolled out a new energy-efficient design concept for the superyacht, named "Bravo Eugenia" after Mr. Jones's wife, Genie.

Jones journeyed the seas in Scandinavia during a Christmas cruise. Not too shabby for a maiden voyage. Jones paid more for this wonderful vessel than he did for the Dallas Cowboys and not just by a small amount.

That price tag, of course, is $100 million more than what he paid to buy the Cowboys in 1989.

It's been a fun few weeks for Jerry Jones.
