The Cowboys are the most valuable sports franchise in the world at $4.8 billion.

Jones has gone and purchased himself a $250 million superyacht, according to NBC DFW.

What do you think of the new ship? No, but who cares?

Bravo Eugenia is 357 feet long. Dutch yacht builder Oceanco delivered the fuel-efficient ship to its "proud owners" a few days before Christmas, the builder announced. Just know it has a gym, a beach club, massage room, sauna, plunge pool, a garage for water vehicles and a helipad, for starters. Bravo Eugenia is capable of a top speed of 17.5 knots while powered by a hybrid propulsion system.

"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 past year.

The state-of-the-art yacht has to have a name, and the 76-year-old Jones made sure to please his significant other before the credit card bill came in the mail.

The yacht - named Bravo Eugenia after Jones' wife, Eugenia (better known as "Gene") - reportedly can sail at a top speed of 17.5 knots, equivalent to about 20 miles per hour. Not too shabby, I guess. Jones paid more for this unbelievable vessel than he did for the Dallas Cowboys and not just by a small amount.

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