The brand-new, 357-foot-long superyacht Project Bravo received plenty of attention when it was launched late last year. But when several sources started to report that Project Bravo’s owner was none other than Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones, the media reports became a lot more sensational. And since a bombastic billionaire like Jones has never been afraid of the limelight, it comes as no surprise that the sports and financial media have been attracted to such celebrity story. But since Bravo’s reported estimated price tag of $250 million dwarfs the mere $140 million Jones paid for “America’s Team” back in 1989, I think the yacht is actually the bigger star.
According to published reports, the Bravo’s naval architecture and engineering was done by Lateral, the exterior design is by Nuvolari Lenard and the interior design is by Reymond Langton Design.
Despite Bravo’s imposing size, Nuvolari Lenard created a stunning low profile with exquisite proportions reminiscent of a sport yacht rather than a superyacht. “This new style will certainly create a new design stream,” says Carlo Nuvolari, partner in Nuvolari Lenard.
Meanwhile, Jones’s yacht also offers many special features, including a helicopter pad on both the foredeck and the aft deck, a large tender garage and dedicated equipment stowage, providing plenty of space for a large selection of water toys. She also has a large spa that includes a sauna, steam room, massage room, plunge pool and rain shower. Also, on the lower deck are a complete gym and a generous and luxurious beach club.
The interior is a sophisticated elegant contemporary design that features light maple wood and white pearl lacquer with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony. “We worked very closely with the owner to find the perfect artisans and craftsmen in creating bespoke artworks, fabrics and signature furniture pieces that reflect the owner’s style and essence and combine to create a warm, inviting environment for all on board, “ says Pascale Reymond, partner in Reymond Langton Design.
“Oceanco credits the success of this extraordinary new benchmark yacht to the dedicated team effort of all individuals at Oceanco, Lateral, both design studios, Burgess, and the Owner’s team”, says project director Edske Smit.
The only question is now, will the team get invited aboard if they win the Superbowl. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
