Greek Island Owned By Aristotle Onassis Where He Married Jackie Kennedy - SOLD

Billionaire gets deal on Onassis heiress’s island — just $153M for the site where Jackie O got married

The private luxury island where John F Kennedy‘s widow Jackie K married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis has reportedly been sold for £100m or just $153M by the tycoon’s sole surviving heir.

The forested island, off the western coast of Greece, was bought by Aristotle Onassis in 1962 for just 3.5 million drachmas, the equivalent of about £10,000 or $15,600.

Six years later it hosted his wedding to Jacqueline Kennedy, the widow of the late President John F Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963.

The Onassis family forged a deep bond with the island – Aristotle is buried there, as is his daughter and his son, Alexander, who died in a plane crash in 1973.

It is understood that contracts for the purchase of the island are being drawn up by law firms and Geneva.

Where Jackie Kennedy was maried

Though he had not heard about the sale, a prominent broker of private islands around the world, said that it was quite possible that Ms Onassis Roussel (Pictured Left) had decided to sell.

Farhad Vladi, who was hired to carry out an evaluation of Skorpios eight years ago, said: “These Russian oligarchs have billions, so it may be that one of them came along and said ‘I will give you 100 million or 200 million euros for it’. Anything is possible.”

Mr Vladi was hired by Ms Onassis Roussel to carry out an evaluation of the island about eight years ago.

“I spent three days on the island. It’s beautiful but all its water comes from a mountain bought by Aristotle Onassis on a nearby island. So if you buy the island, you need to buy the mountain too. I would put the price at somewhere north of 100 million euros.”

The scene of lavish parties thrown by Aristotle Onassis, Skorpios boasts three residences, a helicopter landing pad and a boat quay.

Once described as “the richest girl in the world”, the Swiss-educated Ms Onassis Roussel is the only surviving descendant of the shipping magnate.

Jackie Kennedy

The exciting novel Saving Jackie K is an action-adventure novel that springs from a dark premise – what if the political assassins killed Jacqueline Kennedy instead of her husband?
