Charter the legendary yacht Christina O

Christina O
Christina O Cruising

CHRISTINA O encapsulates the legend that was Aristotle Onassis. As a result of an extensive re-fit, this magnificent yacht defines a new category in luxury yachting. CHRISTINA O is one of the only mega yachts capable of accommodating up to 36 guests in 19 staterooms, in full compliance with SOLAS, US Coastguard and Public Health regulations.

CHRISTINA O's canopied decks are the ideal venue for any extra special occasion. When Onassis bought the yacht in 1954, he converted the yacht at an expense of over $4 million, into the largest, most modern and most exalted yacht of her era. CHRISTINA O became his floating mansion and headquarters for over two decades until his death in 1975. Onassis' guests on board the yacht were some of the most famous and influential people of the time. At night, CHRISTINA O served as the stage for Onassis' celebrated social life, as he played host to Presidents and Prime Ministers, royalty and film stars. CHRISTINA O's fame owes itself to names such as Maria Callas, The Begum of Aga Kahn, John Paul Getty, John D Rockefeller, Eva Peron, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Rudolf Nureyev, John Wayne, Greta Garbo and Dame Margot Fonteyn... John F Kennedy and Sir Winston Churchill first met as guests of Aristotle Onassis on board CHRISTINA O and two of the century's most celebrated wedding receptions were held on CHRISTINA O; Prince Rainier to Princess Grace, and Onassis to Jackie Kennedy.

In 1978 Onassis's daughter Christina donated the yacht CHRISTINA O to the Greek Government, and the yacht eventually became disused. In 1998 CHRISTINA O was purchased by a family friend of Onassis and underwent an extensive refurbishment and re-powering, restoring the yacht to her former glory and with the addition of all the latest technologies and equipments. CHRISTINA O has fabulous areas for entertaining, including a sumptuous dining room capable of seating up to 40 guests. CHRISTINA O's exterior amenities include the famous swimming pool which converts to a dance floor, a large Jacuzzi and extensive sunbathing decks. Up to 250 guests can be entertained on CHRISTINA O's canopied decks for the ultimate event.

Built/Refitted: Christina O was originally built in 1943 as a Canadian Convoy Escort. Bought & refitted as a yacht by Aristotle Onassis in 1954, Christina O was restored & extensively refitted in 1999-2001.
