The triumphant winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or award at this year's Cannes Film Festival is the social satire Triangle of Sadness, which features a Marxist yacht captain, played by the brilliant Woody Harrelson, as he helms a cruise for the super-rich on board the 99m (325ft) classic yacht CHRISTINA O.
The film is directed by the Swedish director Ruben Östlund – marking his second Palme d’Or having nabbed Cannes’ top honor in 2017 with his previous film The Square – and features pivotal scenes on board the iconic yacht, thrusting it into the limelight for show-goers and cinephiles across the globe where they are afforded a voyeuristic glimpse into the lavish world of superyachts.
As the former vessel of billionaire shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, the legendary 99m (325ft) superyacht CHRISTINA O set the scene for the original jetsetters, hosting a raft of luminaries, from the likes of Winston Churchill, Marilyn Munroe and Grace Kelly around the burgeoning superyacht destination of the French Riviera during the fifties and sixties, and, today, continues to be one the world’s most iconic yachts.
Available for charter, she now offers the unique chance to experience the opulence of the Onassis era with the amenities expected from a modern-day superyacht.
What's more, she is one of the rare charter yachts capable of sleeping up to 36 guests while cruising on a luxury yacht charter and she can also host up to 157 guests at harbour-side events and celebrations.
Her inviting contemporary interiors include a show-stopping atrium, with a majestic staircase and brass and onyx handrail that spirals upwards. Best taken in from above, there is a spectacular mosaic on the floor depicting Onassis' Omega emblem.
Opportunities for entertainment and relaxation continue onto Christina O’s generous decks. Referred to as the compass deck, her top tier features a line-up of sun loungers, a bar and, of course, fabulous ocean views.
On the deck below, a clear expanse of teak deck forms a versatile space aft of the funnel. Extremely flexible, this space perfectly adapts to whatever occassion charterers have on the agenda.
Her main deck aft also features the famous swimming pool with its mosaic of the Minoan bull and vaulter painstakingly recreated from the palace at Knossos. Another highlight of the pool is that its floor can raise to form a dance floor or other area in which to socialise.
She is available for charter around the celebrated destinations of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
