Motor Yacht - Christina O - 99 m - Canadian Vickers - 1943
In 1998, Onassis family friend and shipping industry leader John Paul Papanicolaou started restoring the yacht he had cruised on as a child.

The "Christina O" accommodates up to 36 passengers in 18 staterooms with luxurious en-suite marble bathrooms, as well as the breathtaking Onassis Suite. The 325-foot yacht is the first in the world to bear a passenger classification.

One of the most famous society venues of the mid 20th century, the Christina O was launched in 1943 as a naval vessel by shipyard Canadian Vickers.
Converted for Aristotle Onassis in 1954 by HDW, it was a hotbed of celebrity pleasures until Onassis’ death in 1975.
Sold in 1998 to Greek shipowner John Paul Papanicolaou, it was then sent to Croatia for an extensive refit in 1999 (-2001), though many original features remain, such as the swimming pool’s copy of a Minoan mosaic from Knossos.

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.

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.
