It's a few meters longer than a football field and has two helipads to land his other favorite toy - his jet helicopter. The naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects helped made it the first yacht to have a LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel Efficient, Eco Friendly) design.

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.

Superyachts.com describes the design of the yacht as "dynamic, futuristic, and minimalist".

TMZ also reported that Pascale Reymond, one of the designers of the boat, said: "We worked very closely with the owner to find the flawless artisans and craftsmen in creating bespoke artworks, fabrics, and signature furniture pieces that reflect the owner's style and essence and combine to create a warm, inviting environment for all on board".

The new yacht is called Bravo Eugenia and named after Jones' wife, Gene Jones, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Also, on the lower deck are a complete gym and a generous and luxurious Beach Club".

The contemporary interiors by British firm Reymond Langton feature maple wood and pearl lacquer finishes with contrasting ebony details. It can accommodate 14 passengers in addition to 20 crew members. The Cowboys are the most valuable sports franchise in the world at $4.8 billion.

The Cowboys, of course, are worth well beyond what Jones paid in 1989.
