Life at sea suits Heidi Klum. The supermodel and her husband, Tom Kaulitz, appear to have been on the ocean since earlier this month, and judging from Klum’s frequent bikini-clad Instagram posts, she isn’t in any rush to return to land. On August 3, the couple said "I do" off the coast of Capri, Italy, aboard the Christina O., a vessel that has played host to many A-list weddings in the past, including that of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III, as well as Jackie Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis, who owned the yacht at the time and named it after his daughter. (Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Winston Churchill, and other notable people have also set foot aboard the vessel.)
The 325-foot yacht boasts 17 cabins and can accommodate a whopping 250 guests (for, say, a wedding reception). It is currently owned by the Greek-founded charter company Yalef Yachts. Under Onassis’s ownership, the interior was remade to include a three-story stairwell painted in Greek cobalt blue, white, and gold, as well as a portside bar and a rear lounge with an impressive fireplace made of lapis lazuli gemstone. Perhaps the most noteworthy feature, though, is a saltwater fantail pool on the main deck, with a blue Minoan-bull mosaic floor that can actually be raised (after the pool is drained, of course) to become a dance floor.
According to a website for the Christina, the superyacht currently charters for $634,000 per week—no small amount of change even for superstars like Klum and Kaulitz. Other features that the newlyweds likely took advantage of include a luxury spa, gym, waterslide, Jet Skis, and a flyboard.
Following their nuptials, the former Victoria’s Secret supermodel and the Tokio Hotel singer embarked a smaller—though still gorgeous and luxurious—ship to begin a relaxing honeymoon. “I could live on a boat,” Klum captioned a Boomerang of herself padding barefoot around the boat’s perimeter on August 14. Another day, they enjoyed an impressive breakfast array against a backdrop of glistening blue waters, and a short video clip Klum shared on August 18 shows Kaulitz snoozing on a white, luxuriously wide outdoor bed as the sun rises over the water. “When you wake up outside in this location…and your husband is still sleeping,” she captioned the clip.
