Video: Jaguars Owner Shad Khan's Kismet Returns To Jacksonville

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan's Kismet made its way down the St. Johns River into downtown Jacksonville Thursday, passing by Metropolitan Park and the WJCT Studios around 12:50 p.m.

The 312-foot-long superyacht was built for Khan in 2014 by Lurssen. It features an interior designed by Reymond Langton Design and an exterior styled by Espen Oeino., according to

A superyacht is defined as a luxury yacht which has a professional crew and has a length of at least 24 metres, which is 78.7 feet.

The Kismet has become a somewhat regular site in Jacksonville during the fall and winter. Khan has often had his crew sail it into town.

As it has in the past, Khan's crew has docked the Kismet in front of the CSX headquarters along the Northbank next to the Acosta Bridge.

The Jaguars take on the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at TIAA Bank Field at 1 p.m.
