Throughout the history of yachting, there has really been only one yacht that has truly become a legend. Aristotle Onassis' yacht, CHRISTINA O, has really achieved this singular distinction. Aristotle had spent $4.0 million in 1954 equivalent to $27.0 million in 1999 on CHRISTINA O.

CHRISTINA O became, after the installation of over 560 tons of new steel a much stronger ship than was originally built, with 5 inch plate used to replace the original 4 inch hull plating and 100 tons of aluminum. Other refit statistics include over 56 miles of new wiring, 140 tons of pipe work and a total of 1.2 million hours of labor consumed by the project over the 16 months spent in Croatia. CHRISTINA O now boasts incinerators, heavy-duty waste shredders, plus a galley with dedicated specialist pot washing rooms and four massive pantries.The engine room, a huge area, is dominated by two six cylinder diesels (2,775 hp MAN).
 

With guests such as Sir Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, The Aga Khan, King Farouk of Egypt, King Faud of Saudi Arabia, Eva Peron, John Paul Getty, John D. Rockefeller, John Wayne, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra,Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor, Prince Ranier and Grace Kelly, and, obviously, Maria Callas and Jacqueline Kennedy, CHRISTINA O has earned her place in history. Along with the fantastic entertaining that took place during the Aristotle Onassis days, CHRISTINA O today holds valid certificates to carry 36 passengers for hire. With these credentials and support facilities, CHRISTINA O can charter, support large private parties, or even act as a mothership to a J-boat program. She is capable of sleeping the entire race crew and wives on board while being a great base of operation for such an event.
