In 1978 Onassis’s daughter Christina donated the yacht to the Greek Government,and it eventually became disused. In 1998 the vessel was purchased by a family friend of Onassis and underwent an extensive refurbishment and re-powering, restoring her to her former glory and with the addition of all the latest technologies and equipments.
