In honor of the brand’s 50th anniversary, Valef has announced that the completely refurbished luxury vessel—famously owned by Aristotle Onassis and Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis—will be one of the 400 resplendent cruisers it is couple’s mega-yacht boasts a stately spiralling staircase, a nautical bar, a lapis lazuli fireplace and a grand piano, as well as its iconic mosaic pool that was often transformed into a dance floor.

In its heyday, this ultra-luxe liner was just as famous for its grandeur as it was for the company it kept. Christina O’s affluent owners regularly welcomed Hollywood insiders and members of the business and political elite: the ex-king Farouk of Egypt, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, and Greta Garbo all enjoyed lavish sails aboard the yacht. Holidaymakers wishing to experience summer on Ari’s grande oceanic dame can expect to spend €630,000 (about P36,860,115) a week and can reserve their holiday up to one year in advance.
