The Onega wasn't an Imperial yacht, but a utility steamship attached to the Guards Equipage and used by various high officials for their trips around Petersburg - to Peterhof etc. The Marevo was a small (85 tons) steam yacht used in short cruises (mainly in Finland fjords) as an "accompanying" ship. After decommisioning in 1911, she was refurbished into a floating church of the Alexander Nevsky Sobriety Brotherhood.

Thank you for the information. I have seen glassware from both vessels, so I assumed they were much bigger.

No, also the Onega was a small ship - just over 300 tons. It was a paddle steamship, BTW.
