Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' $250M yacht has helipad, spa

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' $250M yacht has helipad, spa

To put the price in perspective, Jones reportedly spent $140 million to buy the Cowboys in 1989. The 357-foot (119 yards) vessel is larger than a football field. Just know it has a gym, a beach club, massage room, sauna, plunge pool, a garage for water vehicles and a helipad, for starters.

Work isn't quite finished on Mr. Jones's new toy. The boat came to market in November of past year and is the first yacht by Oceana to have what's referred to as a "LIFE" (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel-Efficient, and Eco-Friendly) design.

According to Business Insider, the yacht is one of the first to feature a LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel Efficient, Eco-Friendly) design. "We worked very closely with the Owner to find the ideal 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, " says Pascale Reymond, partner in Reymond Langton Design. There's no word on what the bespoke art might include, but Jones is a known art collector with tastes that run from modern masters like Picasso and Ellsworth Kelly to current art stars like Jenny Holzer, Eva Rothschild, and Anish Kapoor. And it's named after his wife, Gene.




Jones, whose Cowboys are preparing for an NFC divisional-round game at the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night, is worth an estimated $6.8 billion, according to Forbes.

When your name is Jerry Jones and you are the owner of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, chances are the gifts you purchase for yourself won't be made at your local mall.
