Former yacht of Onassis inspires Four Seasons Yacht design

The exterior design of the two large cruise yachts that Four Seasons Yachts will operate seems to have been inspired by a yacht that once belonged to Aristotle Onassis (1906-75), the Greek shipping tycoon.

In 1954, Onassis acquired the frigate HMCS Stormont that had been built in Canada in 1943 and converted it into a luxury yacht that he named Christina, after her daughter.

Onassis owned the vessel with a length of 99 metres and a displacement of 2,550 tonnes until his death and entertained a wide range of celebrities onboard with his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, formerly First Lady of the US and wife of President John F. Kennedy.
