- The 325-foot yacht formerly owned by Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis and former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis can now be rented for $100,000 per day, CNN and Robb Report recently reported.
- The couple frequently hosted famous guests aboard their ship, including Hollywood stars Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe.
- Named the Christina O after Aristotle Onassis’ daughter, the ship remains one of the only luxury yachts to accommodate a large number of passengers.
Jackie O’s yacht can now be yours for a day — if you have $100,000 to drop on it, that is.
According to recent reports from CNN and Robb Report, interested parties can now rent the Christina O, the legendary superyacht that was formerly owned by millionaire shipping mogul Aristotle Onassis and former First Lady Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis.
With new updates made in 2015 and 2018, Valef Yachts is now chartering the ship for €90,000, ($100,000) per day for the upcoming peak summer months and €80,000 ($90,000) during the low season. Rental also comes with additional fees and deposits for food, fuel, and other amenities.
After Onassis’ death in 1975, his daughter — whom the yacht is named after — donated the vessel to the Greek government. The vessel, under the name the Argo, remained in government hands until the late 1990s, when a family friend purchased the ship at an auction, restored it to premium condition, and renamed it the Christina O to honor its history.
The Telegraph reported the ship was "once the most exclusive bar in the world," as the rich and famous gathered there by invitation only. Keep reading for a look inside the Christina O from the stateroom lounges to the outdoor Jacuzzi deck.
Originally a convoy escort called the Stormont, shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis purchased the yacht in 1954.
Until his death in 1975, the Christina served as both Onassis’ residence and headquarters.
Onassis made his fortune in the shipping business, eventually owning one of the world’s largest fleets. However, the Christina luxury yacht was considered his flagship vessel, as it served as both his office headquarters and as his "floating mansion."
Both Aristotle and Jackie frequently used the ship to entertain an impressive list of guests.
Aristotle and Jackie Onassis married in 1968, a wedding that shocked many fans still mourning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
