Former Razorback and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took luxury relaxation to the next level by purchasing one of the largest yachts built in the Netherlands. Not only are the Cowboys fresh off their first playoff win since 2014, but Jones also bought himself a $250 million yacht. The 357-foot (119 yards) vessel is larger than a football field.

"The LIFE design's use of advanced hybrid propulsion, which incorporates significant battery capability, is combined with a single-tier engine room that allows novel use of space for outstanding luxury accommodation", James Roy, director of Lateral Naval Architects, told Robb Report previous year.

The former first-round pick threw for 2,865 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 13 games during his rookie campaign. The Cincinnati Bengals and the Dolphins remain the only teams yet to name their head coach for the 2019 season.

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

Oceanco and naval engineering firm Lateral rolled out a new energy-efficient design concept for the superyacht, named "Bravo Eugenia" after Mr. Jones's wife, Genie. "Also, on the lower deck are a complete gym and a generous and luxurious Beach Club". The ship has a single-tiered engine room, which allows for the ship's slender design and more room for guest accommodations, according to the builder.

"The interior is a sophisticated, elegant, contemporary design that features light maple wood and white pearl lacquer with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony", according to a December release from Oceanco. The Cowboys, valued at $5 billion, account for the largest chunk of his fortune.
