Skorpios, a private island off the coast of Greece that for decades belonged to Greek shipping billionaire Aristotle Onassis, has been sold to an anonymous Russian billionaire for $153 million.
The Island of Skorpios, as it is renowned as, is home for three exquisite residences, boat quay and helipad. It was sold by the granddaughter of Onassis, who had been bestowed with tenure of it back in 1975, to some anonymous Russian billionaire. The island is strongly related to the Onassis family, as his son Alexander and daughter Christina have been both buried on it.
The island, which Onassis bought in 1962 for $15,000, was made famous as the location of Onassis’ wedding to former First Lady in 1968.
