Christina O for sale

ADVERTISEMENT

The glamorous and historic M/Y Christina O has been put up for sale. The 325-foot (99m) yacht is listed with Edmiston for $21 million.



Formerly owned by Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, the yacht hosted star-studded parties throughout the 1950s and 60s. Her guests included former President John F Kennedy, Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe.



Built in 1943, the vessel was originally a Canadian anti-submarine River-class frigate called HMCS Stormont and was launched in 1943. She served during World War II and was a surplus naval vessel until Onassis bought her in 1954. After his death in 1975, it was given to the Greek government for us as a presidential yacht.



The yacht runs with a crew of 35 and can accommodate 36 guests in 18 staterooms and the Onassis Suite.

“Aristotle Onassis saw Christina O as a powerful symbol of his growing business empire,” Chairman Nicholas Edmiston told the UK’s The Daily Mail. “It really was the last word in opulence and many personalities were attracted by its ability to offer them some privacy, not just by its magnificence.”
