Owner – Philip Niarchos

The owner of ATLANTIS II is Philip Niarchos, who inherited the yacht from his late father, Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos. Stavros had the Hellenic Shipyard create a fleet of 3 private yachts to compete with his rival, Aristotle Onassis.

Onassis was a Greek shipping magnate and was the first husband of Niarchos’s second fifth wife, Tina Onassis Niarchos, a Greek socialite, and shipping heiress.

In 1952, Niarchos owned the world’s largest supertankers, which made him a giant in global petroleum shipping due to the demand for oil and the Suez Crisis.

He was the original investor in Hellenic Shipyards and commissioned the three identical sister ships to be named the Atlantis.

Atlantis I is now called Navtilvs, Atlantis II is the second of this trio, and the third is a never-finished hull. Philip Niarchos is currently the wealthiest individual in Greece and has a net worth of $2,5 billion.
