Jones owns the Dallas Cowboys and is constantly making headlines for his comments on football and social issues. The billionaire businessman has laid down a whopping $250 million on Oceana's Project Bravo superyacht.

Websites that cover the yachting industry report that Jones took delivery of a almost 360-foot, Dutch-built yacht on December 20 somewhere in Scandinavia. Dutch yacht builder Oceanco delivered the fuel-efficient ship to its "proud owners" a few days before Christmas, the builder announced.

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

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. The naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects helped made it the first yacht to have a LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel Efficient, Eco Friendly) design. There is room for 14 guests, while the ship has 30 members.

The contemporary interiors by British firm Reymond Langton feature maple wood and pearl lacquer finishes with contrasting ebony details. Jones, 76, is worth approximately $6.8 billion overall.

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

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.
