Aristotle Onassis, Christina O
The Scoop: Aristotle Onassis purchased the 325-foot megayacht, the Christina O, in
1954 for a reported $34,000, then spent $4 million transforming the vessel into a luxury liner with
18 staterooms, a pool with a mosaic floor that morphs into a dance floor, a Renoir, and a grand
spiral staircase with a silver and onyx handrail. You’ll be ensconced in history as well:
onboard, Onassis entertained Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Frank Sinatra, Sir Winston Churchill (who
first met John F. Kennedy there in 1957 at Ari’s bar), and many other notables (including his
mistress Maria Callas and later wife Jacqueline Onassis).
The Price: $65,000 to $94,000 per night.
