Where Is Jerry Jones’ Yacht? Vessel Has Swarovski-Studded Furniture
Forget the athletes. The real star of the 2020 NFL Draft was Jerry Jones’ yacht, the $250-million Bravo Eugenia. The Dallas Cowboys owner left football fans in awe after they learned he had monitored the draft from a room aboard his 357-foot-long yacht.
At the time, ESPN reporter Don Van Natta Jr. called it a "super-flex," though it's still brought up when discussing billionaires' lifestyles and the lavish purchases they make.
Jones' yacht, constructed by Dutch superyacht builder Oceanco, has since made a splash in media after it dropped anchor outside Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle, Wash. The yacht — named after Jerry’s wife, Gene — has also been spotted docked in Miami and cruising up the Thames River in London, England.
Keep reading for details on the features Jones' boat is equipped with and where he houses it.
How much does it cost to run the Bravo Eugenia annually?
On its website, Oceanco says that the Bravo Eugenia is its first LIFE Design yacht. LIFE Design is an approach that “synergizes the elegance and performance of Oceanco’s vessels with a carefully considered approach to their environmental impact,” according to SuperyachtNews.
The Bravo Eugenia has “best-in-class hydrodynamic efficiency, advanced hybrid propulsion, and 100 [square meters] of extra guest space at the waterline level,” according to Oceanco.
The vessel’s other sustainability features includes integrated battery systems, waste heat recovery, and a 30 percent increase in fuel efficiency. For these advancements, the boat received the Yacht Club de Monaco’s first Belle Class Explorer Award for Technology and Innovation.
SuperYachtFan estimates that it costs between $15 million and $20 million to run annually.
What exciting features does Jerry Jones' yacht have?
With exterior styling by Nuvolari Lenard, the vessel’s proportions evoke a sport yacht more than a superyacht. “This new style will certainly create a new design stream,” said Carlo Nuvolari, a partner at Nuvolari Lenard, according to Forbes.
Reymond Langston handled the yacht's interior design. “We worked very closely with the owner to find the perfect 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,” explained Pascale Reymond, a partner at Reymond Langton Design.
The boat is 357 feet long, with a 53-foot beam. It offers a range of amenities, including two helicopter pads, a tender garage for watercraft, a gym, a beach club, and a spa that features a plunge pool, a rain shower, a sauna, a steam room, and a massage room.
It's also reportedly equipped with Swarovski crystal-studded furniture.
Is Jones' yacht equipped with a helicopter pad?
The 79-year-old also owns an ACH145 helicopter, according to Robb Report. Jones told the magazine that he originally got the 10-passenger helicopter for transportation, but it has been a boon to the Cowboys brand, too.
“It lends an aura to the Cowboys, whether we’re circling the stadium and landing in the parking lot on game day or carrying business associates and sponsors,” he explained. “It gets [fans’] attention and keeps them thinking about us. I’m being facetious, but I’m also half-serious here. I’d like to take it and land it on every road in Texas. Or maybe have five, landing in every community across the U.S. It’s a real attention magnet.”
Where does Jerry Jones house 'Bravo Eugenia'?
When Jones isn't out enjoying life on the water aboard his superyacht Bravo Eugenia, it's likely docked at Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle. The Cowboys owner might also rely on other docks to house his yacht depending on where he is.
