Step aboard and set sail on one of the most famous luxury yachts. Transformed from World War II Canadian frigate to luxury vessel by Aristotle Onassis in 1954, the Christina O has played host to many notable names, among them Sir Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy, who first met at the bar; as well as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe.
Onassis epitomised the life of the superyacht elite, garnering a reputation as the original jetsetter, but following his death in 1975, Christina O fell into disrepair. Thankfully, a family friend of Onassis lead a restoration effort that was completed in 2001 and was later fully refurbished in 2016 – 2017. This rare floating tribute to the past is now available for charter with luxurious accommodations and incredible on-board service.
Christina O is capable of hosting up to 250 people at quay with accommodations for 34 spread across 17 cabins, and also has a mosaic swimming pool, three lounges, a deck dining area, spa, gym, and library. She’s perfect for business functions, family retreats or simply spoiling your best friends.
Christina O offers accommodation for 34 guests consisting of a master stateroom located amidship with a king size bed and bathroom facilities including a bath, a shower and lavatory and another 16 guest cabins.
Known as the Onassis Suite, the yacht’s master stateroom stretches across the forward section of the bridge deck and comprises three rooms: a large sleeping quarters, a white Penteli marble bathroom and a book-lined study. The study is oak-paneled and has the original onyx fireplace, while the bedroom has its authentic Baccarat crystal wall lights.
Christina O’s elegant interior was completely gutted during her most recent refit, with special artifacts salvaged and restored. Of note on the main deck is the Lapis Lounge, named after its original lapis fireplace, which remains in place, and decorated in the style of an English country manor house.
The main deck is also home to a dining salon with a 24-seater table, and the Aris Bar, which boasts its original rope-covered bar, whale fang bar handles and whale-skin bar stools. A majestic atrium with a striking mosaic of the Onassis omega logo then allows guests to access the two further salons on the promenade deck above via a spiral staircase.
Christina O is well equipped with tenders and toys. The Flyboard is a new addition, along with the AquaGlide inflatable slide, three waverunners and two RIBs for watersports, in addition to the two Hacker Craft tenders.
