Jerry Jones buys quarter-billion dollar yacht with helipads, plural

As a Christmas present to himself, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones bought himself a superyacht.

Mr. Jones, 76-whose net worth is valued at $6.8 billion-reportedly spent $250 million on the impressive yacht, $110 million more than he paid for the National Football League team in 1989.

Designed by Nuvolari Lenard, and built in the Netherlands, the yacht technically launched in 2017, but was delivered to the billionaire owner of the Dallas Cowboys in December 2018.

According to Business Insider, the yacht is one of the first to feature a LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel Efficient, Eco-Friendly) design.

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.

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. It can accommodate 14 passengers in addition to 20 crew members. Other features include a garage for water vehicles and a spa, complete with massage room and sauna.

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

Per Yachtharbour.com: It cost $250 million (as many folks pointed out, that's $100 million more than the price he paid for the Cowboys). The Cowboys, valued at $5 billion, account for the largest chunk of his fortune.
