Onassis yacht hits market for $32.4 million

One of the most famous celebrity yachts, which hosted the Kennedys and Frank Sinatra — where President John F. Kennedy first met Winston Churchill and where Princess Grace and Prince Rainier held their wedding reception — is on the market.

Aristotle Onassis' Christina O was bought by the shipping tycoon in 1954 and named after his daughter. The 325-foot-yacht is now listed by the Edmiston Company for $32.4 million.

Built in 1943, the yacht was originally a Canadian anti-submarine River-class frigate called HMCS Stormont and was launched in 1943. She served as a convoy escort during the Battle of the Atlantic and was at the D-Day landings in 1944.

After World War II she was one of many surplus naval vessels; Greek ship owner Aristotle Onassis purchased her for its scrap value of $34,000.
