Nobody back in 1943 in Canada could have guessed the future fame of the frigate Stormont, a convoy escort. But then came 1954, when Aristotle Onassis bought her. Instead of writing history as a navy ship, she wrote history as the world’s grandest and most exalted yacht: Onassis’ legendary “Christina”. Under new ownership in 1998, she was given her new name “Christina ‘O’”. She has been restored to her old glory, through a complete refurbishment and repowering by the world’s leading experts. She is one of the only mega yachts capable of accommodating up to 36 guests in 17 staterooms, in full compliance with SOLAS, US Coastguard and Public Health regulations. Her history is unique…..sail back in time with the likes of Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Grace, Frank Sinatra, aboard the famous ship of the legendary Aristotle Onassis and Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis.
When Onassis bought the vessel 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.
In 1978 Onassis’s daughter Christina donated the yacht to the Greek Government and it eventually became disused. In 1998 the vessel was purchased by a family friend of Onassis and underwent an extensive refurbishment and re-powering, restoring her to her former glory and with the addition of all the latest technologies and equipment.
CHRISTINA O has fabulous areas for entertaining, including a sumptuous dining room capable of seating up to 40 guests. Her exterior amenities include the famous swimming pool which converts to a dance floor, a large Jacuzzi and extensive sunbathing decks. 2 massage rooms, 1 beauty room, fitness therapists are included in the charter rate no additional cost.
CHRISTINA O’s canopied decks are the ideal venue for any extra special occasion. She can cruise with up to 157 persons and up to 250 guests can be entertained on her canopied decks for the ultimate event at dock.
