Jerry Jones is in Miami ready for a party.
The 357-foot yacht, which is almost as long as a football field, dwarfs most of the boats docked nearby. “Bravo Eugenia” is named after Jones’ wife Gene.
The “superyacht” has two helipads and room for a 30-person crew in 15 cabins. Among the amenities are a sauna, massage room, steam room, plunge pool, and rain shower. According to multiple accounts, the massive yacht can house 14 guests in seven cabins.
According to Forbes, the Bravo Eugenia set Jones back a mere $250 million — far more than the $150 million he paid to buy the Cowboys in 1989.
According to its builder, Oceanco, the Bravo Eugenia was named the Yacht of the Year for 2019 at the World Yacht Trophy Award ceremony in Cannes.
Not surprisingly, Jones’ yacht is bigger than those of Jacksonville’s Shad Khan, whose “Kismet” is 312 feet,
Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder’s new 305-foot-long Lady S has something that no other super yacht in the world has—a 12 seat, two-deck tall IMAX theater that only added an extra $3 million to the final price tag.
The fact that lots of extremely wealthy people who own NFL teams also own superyachts is hardly a news flash. For instance, Home Depot billionaire and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank took delivery of his new 295-foot-long superyacht DreAMBoat this year.
