Superyacht Bravo Eugenia Cost Almost 225 Million Euros
The world of superyachts is usually shrouded in mystery. A lot of a yacht’s details are never revealed, including its price and owner. Still, Mansion Global managed to reveal who the owner of the Bravo Eugenia, the superyacht built by Dutch yacht builder Oceanco, is and what he paid for it.
The Bravo Eugena was bought by Jerry Jones, owner of the American football team Dallas Cowboys. The yacht, named after his wife Genie, cost him 250 million US dollars (almost 225 million euros), reports Mansion Global.
Mansion Global, which writes about the global real estate market, was able to pinpoint the yacht’s owner by tracking a license for the ship’s radio equipment from the Federal Communications Commission last month.
Motor yacht Bravo Eugenia has been designed and built by Oceanco in Alblasserdam, the Netherlands. This 109-metre luxury yacht has a sleek look and a gross tonnage of 3418, which is low considering yachts of similar size.
The vessel features hybrid diesel-electric propulsion and includes a battery bank enabling emission free operation and makes use of waste heat recovery. Due to the smaller engines, a single-layer engine room has been realised, leaving more room for accommodation.
The yacht is one of the three ships nominated for this year’s KNVTS Ship of the Year Award, to be presented at the Maritime Awards Gala on 4 November in Rijswijk, the Netherlands. The jury praises the yacht for its sustainable features without compromising on luxury.
According to the jury, the owner was willing to make investments in up-to-date technology to make systems efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly, which had a higher priority than reducing construction costs.
