Christina O


34 guests, 39 crew

CHRISTINA O encapsulates the legend that was Aristotle Onassis.  When Onassis bought the yacht in 1954, he converted her 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 onboard 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. The vessel'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, etc. and two of the century’s most celebrated wedding receptions were held onboard; Prince Rainier to Princess Grace, and Onassis' to Jackie Kennedy.
