He reportedly purchased the $250 million Bravo Eugenia in December. 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.

The yacht was constructed by Dutch company Oceanco and engineered by Lateral Naval Architects. He has a personal net worth of $6.8 billion, according to Forbes.

Pascale Raymond, a partner at Reymond Langton Design, says in a November release from Oceanco that the firm "worked with artisans and craftsmen to create bespoke artworks, fabrics, and signature furniture pieces that all combine to create a warm, inviting environment on board for the [owner's] family and guests".

According to TMZ, the ship is called "Bravo Eugenia", a name that takes after his wife Gene Jones.

The interior is a sophisticated elegant contemporary design that features light maple wood and white pearl lacquer with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony. The lower deck encompasses a gym and a luxurious "beach club", a yachting term for the ship's waterside lounge.

Before he was the NFL's most recognizable owner, Jones built his fortune as an oil wildcatter and on investments in oil drilling, retail, and residential real estate projects in Dallas. 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.

That price tag, of course, is $100 million more than what he paid to buy the Cowboys in 1989.
