She’s hosted Winston Churchill, the Kennedys, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Rudolf Nureyev during her time as a superyacht, and had a former life as a Canadian anti-submarine frigate. The classic 99.15 metre Christina O boasts a remarkable history.
Formerly owned by Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis, the classic 99.15 metre Christina O was first delivered in 1943 before Onassis refurbished her in a $4 million refit under his ownership in the 1950s. Despite having undergone extensive refit periods, her opulence has been preserved, including her famous Ari’s cocktail bar and concert room.
On board you can expect plenty of wood panelling, antique furniture, pianos and pictures of famous guests sprinkled throughout the interiors. Accommodation on board is for up to 34 across 17 well-appointed cabins.
Primed for entertaining, there is a stage installed around the base of the funnel where Maria Callas has performed and a Minotaur mosaic dance floor, which drops down to reveal a swimming pool.
Christina O is listed for charter with Morley Yachts for €700,000 per week at high season
