See the gargantuan yacht Jerry Jones reportedly bought for $250 million

Jones owns the Dallas Cowboys and is constantly making headlines for his comments on football and social issues.

Jones has gone and purchased himself a $250 million superyacht, according to NBC DFW. 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.

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.

There's also a suite of spa amenities, including its own massage room, sauna, steam room and plunge pool.

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.

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. The lower deck encompasses a gym and a luxurious "beach club", a yachting term for the ship's waterside lounge. There is room for 14 guests, while the ship has 30 members. The Texas tycoon is worth $6.8 billion as of today, according to Forbes. 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.

This vessel apparently replaces a Jones-owned yacht we told you about back in 2013.
