Celebrity NFL Owners’ Superyachts

KEEPING IT LIGHT

From time to time, we like to take a light-hearted look at the world of yachting.  Yacht names inspired by love is always a hoot.  We still chuckle at the comments we get about our salmon skin blog [Yes, some luxury yacht charter vessels DO use salmon skin for upholstery.  NO, it doesn’t smell fishy!!!].

 

GAME ON!

Let’s have some fun and play a game about well-known NFL owners and their personal superyachts.   For every correct answer give yourself 1 to 5 points, depending upon the degree of difficulty.   At the end of the blog, we’ll tell you what you win based on your total points.  Let’s get started!!!

MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION

This is a multiple choice question (3 points):

In January, 2020, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren takes aim and calls out an NFL owner and his purchase of a superyacht. On Twitter she says,

“This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a ‘superyacht’ with its own iMax theater. I’m pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt.”

Is the owner:

  1. Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins #miamidolphins
  2. Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins #washingtonredskins
  3. Stan Kroenke, owner of the Los Angeles Rams
  4. Patrick Bowlen, owner of the Denver Broncos

 

The answer is…

  1. Daniel Snyder is the target of Warren’s ire. Warren wants to impose a 2% surcharge on personal fortunes of $50 million or more, and a 3% fee at $1 billion.  Mr. Snyder is probably happy to know Ms. Warren is no longer a candidate for president of the United States!

 

 

TRUE OR FALSE QUESTION

True or False (2 points)

 

Arthur Blank the owner of the Atlanta Falcons built two tenders to shuttle passengers to and from his superyacht.  True of False?  Blank named the tenders, “Molly” and “Max,” the names of his parents?

TRUE

 

Blank actually built three tenders for his superyacht.  Here is his explanation as to the names he selected for his tenders:

“I personally, carefully chose the names of our three beautiful custom Compass tenders. ‘Soul Purpose’ reflects how being at sea stirs the soul to dream of peace and happiness and a higher purpose in life. The other two tenders, ‘Max’ and ‘Molly’ were named in honor of my parents, which is my way of revering their memory and keeping them forever close to me wherever I travel. They both loved the ocean. I am sure they would have gotten a kick out of knowing I lent their names to such worthy recipients.”

 

 

QUESTION

Match Game (4 points)

 

This game is fairly straightforward, but easy to get incorrect.  Match the name of the yacht owner with the name of the yacht he owns:

Shad Khan                              Bravo Eugenia

 

Arthur Blank                         DreAMBoat

 

Jerry Jones                            Lady S

Daniel Snyder owns motor yacht LADY S

Shad Khan owns motor yacht KISMET

Arthur Blank owns motor yacht  DreAMBoat

Jerry Jones owns motor yacht BRAVO EUGENIA

 

 

THE CLUB

Now, let’s take a look at the NFL Owners Superyacht Club.

 

  • YACHT LADY S.  Daniel Snyder is the owner of the Washington Redskins.  He now takes a seat at the table in the NFL superyacht clubhouse as the owner of the 305 foot Feadship yacht LADY S.  The luxury yacht charter vessel is a 2019 model and is built by Feadship.  The striking exterior is a Michael Leach design and the interior is crafted by Reymond Langton.  Amenities include a one-of-a-kind IMAX theater, fully-certified helipad, and four VIP suites with 8k TVs.

 

  • YACHT KISMET.  This is the 312 foot yacht of Shad Khan. Khan is the owner of the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars.   Lurssen Shipyard in Germany is the builder of the yacht.  Espen Øeino International is the exterior designer and Reymond Langton Design is responsible for the interior. Notable features include not one but two helicopter pads, a private observation platform with an outdoor bed created for stargazing.

 

THE CLUB CONTINUES

 

  • YACHT DreAMBoat.  This is another yacht in the 90 meter range.  The 295 foot yacht is a 2019 model, built by Oceanco in the Netherlands.  Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, built this yacht for his family’s personal use. Espen Oeino is the exterior designer, and Terence Disdale is the designer of the interior.  Note the middle letters in the yacht’s name spell, “AMB” – the initials of the owner, Arthur M Blank.  The owner has a large family of children and grandchildren, and this yacht has accommodations for up to 23 passengers.

 

  • YACHT BRAVO EUGENIA.  The final member of the 90 meter NFL Owner’s Superyacht Club is this 357 foot yacht.  Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys owns this 2018 yacht.  Oceanco is the builder, and Nuvolari & Lenard is the designer of the exterior.  Reymond Langton Design is responsible for the interior.  There are two helicopter landing pads.  Specifically, one is on the foredeck, and another on the main deck aft. There is also a wellness center with sauna, as well as a steam room and plunge pool.
