Christina O classic superyacht

The real story behind the Triangle of Sadness superyacht

When an unhinged captain, celebrity model couple and an elderly arms dealer find themselves on a luxury cruise ship, things take a turn for the worse in Ruben Östlund's Triangle of Sadness. As the glossy satire is released in theatres, we dive into the colourful history of the film's true star (no, not Woody Harrelson), the 99.15 metre superyacht Christina O .

Christina O is no stranger to celebrity fanfare. With classic lines and a trademark yellow funnel, some might say she was destined for the screen and even secured a role in Netflix drama The Crown , starring as the 121.95 metre Alexander , before landing the part of a luxury cruiser in the 2022 comedy Triangle of Sadness. Even in her early years she was often found in the company of A-listers. The former warship was famously rescued and rebuilt by Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis and her guest list reads like a who's who of Hollywood's finest, the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Greta Garbo and Grace Kelley having all graced her decks.

Spending $4 million on a yacht in the years of austerity after the Second World War seemed an act of frivolity by Onassis , but it was shrewd philosophy that underpinned what appeared to be a wasteful extravagance. The Canadian anti-submarine frigate HMCS Stormont , which he bought for its scrap value of $34,000 in 1954, was transformed into Christina O : a pleasure palace that vastly enhanced his status – and wealth – as film stars, politicians, bankers and businessmen answered his invitation to ‘come aboard’. 

What sets Onassis apart from the more patrician yacht owners of the day, who valued their privacy above all else, is that he virtually wrote the manual for today’s superyacht lifestyle. Espadrilled, tanned and always with an eye open beneath his sunglasses to the possibilities of a little publicity, he epitomised the roguish glamour of the mega-rich. Who didn’t aspire to a lifestyle that revolved around beautiful women, yachts and film stars? Yet, as a shrewd businessman, he was among the first to realise the potential of a yacht as a business tool. Who knows how many lucrative doors a few days’ hospitality aboard Christina O opened up for the man who began his career as a refugee from Turkish Anatolia with $250 in his pocket and a ticket to Argentina, where he made his first fortune.

Christina O was named after his first-born child, who inherited her father’s yacht at his death in 1975. However, with the memories of those carefree days perhaps too poignant, Christina donated her namesake to the Greek government in 1978, and a period of slow deterioration followed. Greece was in the hands of a left-wing regime, and the former plaything of a capitalist millionaire was embarrassing.

The yacht was rescued in 1999 by an Onassis family friend, John Paul Papanicolaou, who set about restoring her. The work was more extensive than first thought – 560 tonnes of new steel were required to replace corroded plating – but now with MAN diesels in place of her original steam turbines and many of her original fittings retained, she charters extremely successfully, her 17 cabins putting her into the exclusive mini-cruise liner market, a role that suits her perfectly.

Christina O has undergone numerous refits in recent years, which saw some mechanical and repair work undertaken, including careful restoration of her famous Minotaur mosaic swimming pool/dance floor. A new ‘Callas stage’ was also constructed and installed around the base of the funnel. Although there is an official concert room below – for events like the Maria Callas opera recitals that showcase the yacht’s links to the famous soprano – it was considered that in view of all the available Mediterranean sunshine going to waste, an alternative outdoor space would be a sound investment.

The most preserved areas are the Onassis Suite, the famous Ari’s Bar and the concert room. All guest cabins have been completely refurbished in similar style and still use the names of Greek islands, as accorded by Onassis. The pastel colour scheme in all of the cabins was selected by Jackie O and her choice of colour schemes and décor.

Ari’s Bar is one of the most historical parts of the Christina O . Engraved orca whale teeth provide places to hang a handbag, or hold on to, around the circumference of the bar, whose surface is still the original massive piece of timber from a sunken Spanish galleon. Similar orca teeth offer footrests on the stool columns, which are covered with the whale penis skin that Aristotle loved to tell his guests about.

Countless reams have been written about this famous yacht in gossip columns, scandal sheets, fashion magazines and yachting journals – probably more so than any other yacht afloat. Christina O is a celebrity in her own right and represents a golden age, an era of giants, from those who owned her to those who trod her decks and gave everlasting ambience to her interior spaces.

While she is truly an icon of her time, her legacy lives on both on and off the screen.

Christina O is available for charter with Morley Yachts from €700,000 per week.

CHRISTINA O Yacht – Paradise-like $40M Superyacht

Conceptualized by Aristotle Onassis, a Greek shipping magnate, the Christina O entertained the stars of the 20th century.

Onassis hosted the likes of Winston Churchill, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor. The $40 million yacht hosted legendary parties, scandals, and luxury on the first personal yacht.

CHRISTINA O yacht interior

After World War II, Onassis bought the River-class frigate and spent $4 million converting the vessel into a luxurious superyacht named after his daughter.

The opulence reflected his tastes, with a Minotaur-themed mosaic swimming pool that could be raised into a dance floor once drained.

Ari’s Bar had barstools upholstered with the foreskins of whales, with whales’ teeth as the footrests and ivory armrests.

The bathrooms were in marble, and the fittings were in gold. The fireplace in the famous Lapis Lazuli lounge was encrusted in lapis lazuli.

Illustrator Ludwig Bemelmans designed and painted the children’s dining room. When Onassis died, his daughter donated the boat to the Greek government, which let the masterpiece go to rot.

In 1999, she was bought back from the Greek government by John Paul Papanicolaou and completely gutted.

The CHRISTINA O yacht was refitted with replicas of the lavish features Onassis was so proud of. The interior of the yacht reflects an English country manor house style.

During the refit, more accommodation was added to the vessel. The staterooms are smaller compared to 21st-century yachts. CHRISTINA O has a master suite and 17 passenger staterooms.

She can accommodate 34 guests on board and 39 crew. A spiral staircase connects the many indoor and outdoor living spaces.

She lacks the indoor boat storage that is now standard on superyachts, but she has many living areas, and the deck space is very generous.

She also features a glass-paneled gym, a music room, and other luxury amenities. The compass deck features areas for lounging and sunbathing, while the deck below, called the promenade deck, had an aft spa pool and dining area.

She also has a tender garage filled with toys for fun on the water.

CHRISTINA O yacht exterior

Canadian Vickers built the CHRISTINA O yacht in 1943. She served in Normandy during WWII but later became a surplus relic.

Onassis bought the vessel for her scrap value. Onassis charged the Howaldt Shipyard in Germany with creating the lavish personal yacht.

Caesar Pinnau, a German professor of architecture, created classic lines and a high stern for the new and improved CHRISTINA O.

The classic yellow funnel remains to this day. While the yacht retains some of her rugged exteriors, she appears low-slung and eye-catching in the water.

christina o yacht side image

CHRISTINA O yacht specifications

With a length of 99.1m, the CHRISTINA O yacht has a beam of 11.12m and a draft of 4.24m.

She has a volume of 1802 gross tons; she has a top speed of 19 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. Her MAN engines give her a range of 5000 nautical miles.

She was one of the first boats to fit an onboard stabilization system for guests’ comfort.

CHRISTINA O Yacht for charter

  • 99.13 m / 325 ft
  • CANADIAN VIC / 1943
  • from: 740,000 EUR/week

As once described by the king of Egypt, CHRISTINA O is perhaps the most written about yacht in history. This legendary vessel has witnessed some of the most iconic events over the last century, from serving in World War II at the D-Day Landings to hosting the world’s most influential people during Onassis’ glorious years. Today available for charter, she remains the perfect setting for world-class entertaining, offering a unique opportunity to cruise in style and comfort.

GLAMOUR & ROMANCE In 1954, Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis acquired for scrap value a Canadian frigate that had seen action in Normandy during World War II. Even in today’s world, her 325 feet in length turn heads, so imagine the astonishment 60 years ago when he decided to rebuild and renovate her, turning her into one of the world’s most famous superyachts.

Christina, christened in honor of his daughter, or CHRISTINA O as she is known today, wined and dined world leaders, Hollywood elite and numerous other dignitaries for nearly two decades under his ownership. Winston Churchill, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, ballerina Margot Fonteyn, John Wayne, Maria Callas and Marilyn Monroe were all guests on the yacht over the years.

Upon Onassis’ death in 1975, CHRISTINA O passed to the Greek government, for use as a presidential yacht. Unfortunately, the government could not keep up with the maintenance costs for very long. CHRISTINA O deteriorated for years, until the late 1990s, when a team stepped in to rescue her.

Today, after many refits and continuous improvements, you can walk on the same decks and in the same rooms, meticulously restored, as Richard Burton and Elisabeth Taylor as well as all those other famous guests. You can relax in one of the Hollywood couple’s favorite places, in front of the lapis lazuli-fronted fireplace, in the main deck’s Lapis Lounge, while Maria Callas’ opera notes still play in the Callas Lounge.

Christina O

Motor Yacht

Mega yacht Christina O is the epitome of elegance and luxury and embodies the legend that was Aristotle Onassis. In her original heyday, motor yacht Christina O defined a new category in luxury yachting and hosted some of the world’s most glittering personalities such as Sir Winston Churchill, John F.Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne and countless others.

Originally built in 1943 for use as a Canadian convoy escort, Christina O came into her own when Onassis purchased her in 1954 and converted the sumptuous megayacht at the expense of over US $4m. Christina O became Onassis’ floating mansion and headquarters for over two decades until his death in 1975. Christina Onassis, namesake of the vessel and Aristotle’s daughter, donated her to the Greek government in 1978 where she fell into disrepair. A close family friend purchased Christina O in 1998 and financed an extensive refurbishment and re-powering which has helped restore this incredible yacht to her former glory with the addition of all the latest technology and equipment.

Chartering luxury megayacht Christina O is a spectacular opportunity for those who desire a cruising holiday with the utmost of style and comfort. Christina O’s capacious deck can host up to 250 guests beneath extensive canopies, perfect for a special occasion or one-off corporate incentive. Retaining a dazzling atmosphere of opulence, many photographs and original items from her early days when her guests and cruising destinations were regularly reported in the news.

Christina O boasts eighteen exquisite en-suite cabins, fourteen of which can be configured for either double or twin beds and 10 of which lie forward on the main deck while the remaining eight are housed aft on the cabin deck. The cabins all have an en-suite shower room and are connected by an elegant marble-railed spiral staircase that covers three decks. The Onassis suite is situated on the bridge deck and holds a spacious bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and a private en-suite lounge. The intricate detailing throughout this incredible yacht, from its excess of precious inlay and Baccarat wall lights, is sure to astound.

Other amenities onboard Christina O includes the following: the Galaxy Bar and extensive sunbathing decks on the Compass deck, show lounge, library, massage and beauty salon, children’s playroom, fitness centre, sports lounge and large Jacuzzi on the Promenade deck, ‘Rendezvous’ music lounge, impressive interior dining room, Ari’s Bar, Lapis Lounge and the famous swimming pool whose floor is a replication of the ancient mosaic of Knossos and converts to a dance floor located on the Main deck.

Christina O is available for charter in the Mediterranean for the summer season and the Caribbean and Bahamas during the winter season.

Christina O superyacht

The superyacht Christina O did not start her life on the seas as a playground for the rich and famous. Constructed in 1943 by Montreal-based shipbuilder Canadian Vickers, the 99m Canadian frigate - originally called HMCS Stormont - was first used to serve in the Second World War and was present at the D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944.

Yacht buying guide: all you need to know when purchasing a superyacht Review: Lamborghini takes to the seas

Acquired in 1954 by Aristotle Onassis, it was the Greek billionaire shipping magnate that transformed the Stormont into one of the world’s most luxurious superyachts . Renamed after his daughter, Onassis spent $4m on the refurbishment of a ship that would become an elite and exclusive entertainment destination.

From John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Winston Churchill to Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy, who Onassis later married, Christina O hosted some of the world’s most influential people during her glory years. The wedding reception of Monaco’s Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly was also held on board, while legendary Hollywood couple Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were regular guests.

Today the Christina O can be hired for corporate events and be chartered for private use. Charter prices start from €560,000 (£492,900) a week in low season to €630,000 (£554,700) a week in high season. See morleyyachts.com

‘Greatest yacht of them all’

After a number of refits, the ship has been meticulously restored. It can sleep up to 34 guests who can enjoy the same luxury experienced by the famous visitors of yesteryear. Designed to the highest standard, Onassis’s “unique taste is everywhere”, says Boat International magazine. Christina O is regarded by many as the “greatest yacht of them all”.

THE EPITOME OF OPULENCE

Originally commissioned as a Canadian frigate during World War Two, Christina O found new life in 1954 when purchased by Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis. Under his ownership, she underwent a transformation into the epitome of opulence, becoming the preferred private yacht for a prestigious guest list that included icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, and Winston Churchill.

Jackie O’s superyacht Christina O goes on sale for €25m

The 99m superyacht Christina O, previously owned by Aristotle Onassis, is being sold for €25m

Christina O

The 99m vessel shot to fame in the 1950s when she played host to a wealth of celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and John Wayne. Even Winston Churchill was invited on board.

Christina O was also the setting for the wedding reception when Onassis married Jackie Kennedy in 1968. She was built as a World War II surplus Canadian frigate in 1943 and was bought by Onassis in 1954 when he paid scrap value ($34,000) for her.

When the shipping tycoon died, the iconic superyacht was passed down to his daughter Christina, who bequeathed the vessel to the Greek government as a presidential yacht.

In 1999 Christina O was rescued by family friend John Paul Papanicolaou, who restored her. She is one of the few ex-private yachts capable of international cruising with up to 36 passengers.

Christina O recently came fourth in SuperYacht World’s poll of the Top 50 Finest Superyachts in the World . She’s being sold by Edmiston .

KEY FEATURES

  • The yacht with a story of romance
  • Can cruise at night, to a new anchorage each day
  • Spa with 2 therapists full time for massage and treatments
  • 17 cabins. Can have 157 guests at anchor
  • Chefs are really fantastic! Food is amazing
  • New swim platform
  • Classified RYA training centre, with watersports instructor
  • Onassis Suite master cabin amidships near the bridge

Christina O:  Onassis was a visionary. As one of the great businessmen of his time, Onassis chose not to build a new yacht in one of his northern European shipyards, but he chose to transform a ship that already had character and charm. That character and charm is even more evident today after multiple refits and improvements.

There are many ways to enjoy Christina O . She was designed as an impressive yet cosy venue for the world’s most influential people to be entertained. Heads of state and business leaders were invited to socialise with the most beautiful and talented musicians – relationships were forged and developed for the mutual benefit of all.

It is a remarkable opportunity to be able to charter this yacht today for similar entertaining, and benefit from her charm without the cost of ownership.

There are still very few yachts that can accommodate more than 12 Guests, and Christina O is one of them. Not only does she have 17 cabins , but she can also cruise close to shore with up to 157 Guests on board. She is perfect for birthday parties , weddings , anniversaries , and corporate entertaining .

The yacht has a remarkable selection of toys and watersports equipment , so for a charter that is all about fun with family and friends Christina O can compete with the modern large yachts in terms of inventory, while offering something extra in terms of deck space and style.

The yacht’s Head Chef produces Michelin Star standard cuisine, assisted by the Pastry Chef to create fabulous desserts . There is also a Sous Chef that is a Sushi Master and expert in Asian and Japanese cuisine. If wine is something you want to enjoy, there is a wine expert available as part of the Christina O team.

You will find the yacht offers flexibility and enthusiasm for any project you may wish to consider. With the cost of running a yacht like this with 38 crew , charter represents fantastic value.

THE LAST WORD IN OPULENCE

As once described by the king of Egypt, CHRISTINA O is perhaps the most written about yacht in history. This legendary vessel has witnessed some of the most iconic events over the last century, from serving in World War II at the D-Day Landings to hosting the world’s most influential people during Onassis’ glorious years.

Today available for charter, she remains the perfect setting for world-class entertaining, offering a unique opportunity to cruise in style and comfort.

GLAMOUR & ROMANCE

In 1954, Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis acquired for scrap value a Canadian frigate that had seen action in Normandy during World War II . Even in today’s world, her 325 feet in length turn heads, so imagine the astonishment 60 years ago when he decided to rebuild and renovate her, turning her into one of the world’s most famous superyachts.

Christina, christened in honour of his daughter, or CHRISTINA O as she is known today, wined and dined world leaders, Hollywood elite and numerous other dignitaries for nearly two decades under his ownership. Winston Churchill , John Fitzgerald Kennedy , ballerina Margot Fonteyn , John Wayne , Maria Callas and Marilyn Monroe were all guests on the yacht over the years.

Upon Onassis’ death in 1975, CHRISTINA O passed to the Greek government, for use as a presidential yacht. Unfortunately, the government could not keep up with the maintenance costs for very long. CHRISTINA O deteriorated for years, until the late 1990s, when a team stepped in to rescue her.

Today, after many refits and continuous improvements, you can walk on the same decks and in the same rooms, meticulously restored, as Richard Burton and Elisabeth Taylor as well as all those other famous guests. You can relax in one of the Hollywood couple’s favorite places, in front of the lapis lazuli-fronted fireplace, in the main deck’s Lapis Lounge, while Maria Callas’ opera notes still play in the Callas Lounge .

The master suite is spacious, with a sitting room and library. 10 main deck cabins extend from amidships, where they are larger due to the beam. The two cabins in the bow are smaller and are the only ones that don’t convert double to twin. The 6 cabins on the lower deck aft are also wider amidships, and gradually smaller as you go aft. They convert from double to twin, and have the same kind of amenities and bathrooms. Audio Visual Equipment and Deck Facilities: Satellite TV Receivers Flat screen TV’s, DVD players in each cabin Cinema in the Callas lounge 3 Pianos on board, 2 original Steinway and 1 Roland RG – 7 Ipod docking station in the Callas lounge, lapis Lounge, Aris Bar, Jacuzzi bar, pool deck

Christina O

99.13m, (325') - Sleeps 34 Guests

Home › All Yachts › Christina O

Built in the 1940s, the era of unbridled opulence and lavish hospitality as the perfect private enclave for entertaining heads of state and celebrities, 325ft (99.13m) CHRISTINA O is a legendary yacht with myriad unique features. A true icon, CHRISTINA O is suitable for up to 34 guests and available for charter over winter in the Caribbean and Bahamas and in summer will relocate to the Mediterranean.

CHRISTINA O Dining

CHRISTINA O was designed by billionaire Greek shipping magnate, Aristotle Onassis with pleasure and relaxation in mind and named after his beloved daughter.

Onassis, one of the great entrepreneurs and visionaries of his time, conjured this remarkable vessel abounding in character and charm and which has since been refit to impeccable contemporary standards while maintaining the elegance and allure of the 40s.

Guests will be captivated by the sheer size and space aboard CHRISTINA O. There are various deck spaces for entertaining, relaxing and socialising, including the impressive pool deck with its mosaic swimming pool, dining tables and retractable roof; jacuzzi deck with circular bar, seating and umbrellas; an elegant dining terrace and Compass deck with sunlounges.

The glamorous backdrop for entertaining some of the world’s most famous politicians, performers and high-profile guests, CHRISTINA O has been impeccably brought into the modern age, without losing any of her original features.

CHRISTINA O boasts several lounge rooms, formal dining rooms, library, gym, spa with two full-time therapists for massage and treatments, and a cinema room and three pianos onboard for entertainment. There is an impressive circular staircase linking all decks, or an elevator if you prefer.

An outdoor ‘Callas stage’ was constructed on deck, to complement the concert room below, which once hosted performers of the stature of Maria Callas. Other original areas include the Onassis Suite and the cosy and atmospheric Ari’s Bar which comprises a bar made from a piece of timber salvaged from sunken Spanish galleon and decorated with various other ‘treasures’ accumulated by its charismatic former owner.

The on board gym comprises the latest equipment, including two Cybex programmable semi-recumbent bicycles, one Power Plate, one Life Fitness 9500 HR ellipitical bike cross trainer, one Life Fitness Treadmill 9500 HR, plus various free weights and bench.

Befitting her stature and significance, the décor throughout CHRISTINA O is a warm blend of classic and contemporary styling, with fascinating details that will intrigue and delight charter guests.

ACCOMMODATION

CHRISTINA O boasts 17 well-appointed cabins with accommodation for up to 34 guests in absolute luxury.

There are 17 doubles, 14 of which can be converted into twin beds. The master suite is supremely spacious, with a sitting room and library. 10 main deck cabins benefit from their position amidships and are roomy and wide. The two cabins in the bow are the only ones that don’t convert double/twin. The six cabins on the lower deck convert from double to twin and have the same kind of amenities and bathrooms as those on the main deck. Every cabin is equipped with flat screens TVs and DVDs.

All guest cabins have been completely refurbished in similar style and still use the names of Greek islands, as accorded by Onassis. The pastel colour scheme in all the cabins was selected by Jackie O who was also responsible for much of the original styling.

WATERTOYS & TENDERS

CHRISTINA O is on a par with the most modern of superyachts in her arsenal of the latest watertoys and tenders. There are two luxurious Hacker Craft Prestige varnished limousine tenders which can transport up to eight guests each.

For towing, there’s "Black Mamba" 850 (new 2018) RIB tender and an "Olympic Cruiser" 720 (new 2018) sport tender.

Kids of all ages, and kids at heart, will enjoy the fun of assorted inflatable ringos, a six-person banana, snorkelling gear and the Toboggan Aquaglide with a 6.5m slide from the top of the vessel to the water. For those guests looking for more thrilling activities, CHRISTINA O is set-up as an RYA watersports centre. There are two Seadoo Spark 900 HO three-seaters, one Seadoo GTI 120 CV, one Hoverboard and a Flyboard.

To ensure guests’ wishes are fulfilled and exceeded, there’s a crew of 38, all of them dedicated to conveying the unique character of CHRISTINA O and creating a sublime charter for guests.

The yacht’s Head Chef produces Michelin Star quality cuisine, assisted by the Pastry Chef who is renowned for delectable desserts. There is also a Sushi Master and expert in Asian and Japanese cuisine on board. For connoisseurs of wine, the wine expert is on hand to create extraordinary experiences to complement the dining.

For onboard corporate and private events, CHRISTINA O can host between 150 and 250 guests, depending on location.
