Cruising Like Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Christina was one of the most iconic yachts of her time, and now she is available for charter.

In 1954, Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis purchased a 325-foot, Canadian-built, World War II convoy escort, converted it to a luxury yacht and then renamed it after his oldest daughter. Fourteen years later, Jackie Kennedy shocked the world when she married Onassis and Christina took on a mythical allure.

Aristotle died in 1975 and three years later his daughter donated Christina to the Greek government.

Now, renamed Christina O, the yacht has been refurbished and is available for charter. The weekly price starts at $636,046, but keep in mind that you can split the cost with 33 of your dearest friends, because she sleeps 34 people.

You can see more photos and read about the yacht’s many features here.
