Jerry Jones, the high-flying billionaire owner of the Dallas Cowboys, lassoed one heck of a Christmas gift: a $250 million, helipad-equipped superyacht bearing the name of his wife.

Everyone knew Jones had insane money - with a net worth estimated at $6.8 billion by Forbes - but he just spent $250 million on a yacht that's longer than an NFL football field. He reportedly bought a yacht about the size of a football field.

Reports say it also has a sauna, steam room, swimming pool and a gym.

The yacht was constructed by Dutch company Oceanco and engineered by Lateral Naval Architects.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram reports the ship is named Bravo Eugenia after his wife Gene Jones, while YachtHarbour.com reports that it was delivered to Jones on December 20, just in time for Christmas.

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. There is room for 14 guests, while the ship has 30 members. Jones, 76, is worth approximately $6.8 billion overall.

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.

It's worth noting that Jones paid more for the yacht than he did for the Cowboys back in 1989, even with inflation adjustment.
