Atlanta Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Joins Elite NFL Owners Club With Launch Of 295-Foot Superyacht

With the recent launch of his 295-Foot superyacht DreAMBoat, Home Depot billionaire and Atlanta Falcon’s owner Arthur Blank is reportedly joining an exclusive (and yet growing) list of NFL owners who’ve taken delivery of extremely large yachts this year.

Jerry Jones made quite a stir right when news of the launch of his new 357-foot-long yacht he named Bravo Eugenia broke during the NFL playoffs this winter.

Meanwhile, Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder’s newly launched 300-footer has something that no other super yacht in the world has—a 12 seat, two-deck tall IMAX theater—that only added an extra $3 million to the final price tag. And Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan’s 312-foot-long Kismet boasts a charter guest list that includes Beyoncé and Jay Z.

But it’s hard to compete with the sheer volume of Blank’s 295-footer DreAMBoat (AMB are his initials), that was built by Oceanco and designed in collaboration between Espen Øino International and Terence Disdale Design.

The yacht’s massive volume allows for luxurious accommodations for up to 23 guests and the well thought-out crew’s quarters can accommodate up to 33 crew members.

The design emphasis is on large windows that flood the interior with daylight and offer unspoiled views from the inside out. Outside spaces feature a large swimming pool on the main aft deck, an enormous partially enclosed sundeck with Jacuzzi and copious options for seating/ entertaining. “The overall effect,” says Øino, “is a yacht with clean uncluttered lines and a coherent design.”

Meanwhile, the interior design is sophisticated and serene. Since nearly everything from furniture to lighting is custom made, Terence Disdale has created a one-of-a-kind interior that’s chic without being overdone

“It has been an intense project, but with some clear direction from the Owner, excellent collaboration between Espen Øino, Terence Disdale Design and Oceanco, we have achieved a great deal and are poised to deliver a stunning yacht,” says Dan Jackson, the Owner’s representative.

Roderick Gort, Project Director at Oceanco, adds, “Launching DreAMBoat is an important milestone in the construction process of delivering ‘the Owners Perfect Yacht’. We are looking forward to delivering DreAMBoat after her sea trials this spring, and welcoming her to the Oceanco family”

DreAMBoat is currently undergoing sea trials and is on track for her scheduled summer delivery.
