Sailing with New Orleans Yacht Experience on “Roux Stir” is not like sailing on a smaller boat when you were younger or sailing on that catamaran during your vacation. Roux Stir is a Beneteau Oceanis 473. It is designed for…
An invigorating detour from the well-trodden tourist paths of New Orleans.
Captain Doug and his lovely wife Rena greeted my family and I aboard with grace and enthusiasm. Tasty snacks and drinks were offered immediately, setting the tone for what was to become an unforgettable first time experience for my whole family, which included our precocious 4 year old, his 70 year old Grandma, and my husband. Needless to say, our experience on their yacht was a relaxing ride for the whole family. The yacht itself is a beautiful piece of work; my husband noting the fine details found within. There were others onboard but it did not feel cramped at all, with plenty of space and seating to enjoy the Lake views. Our hosts were engaging and looked after our needs in the short time we spent aboard. Thank you Captain Doug and Ms. Rena for sharing your yacht with my family! I’d take a ride on the yacht again in a heartbeat.
We took a chance on something new in NOLA, and it was well worth the gamble. Such a beautiful, peaceful evening – and we were treated like royalty! It was just what we needed to de-stress and re-focus on us. We are planning our next trip within the next month…might even become a “habit”…sailing was smooth, snacks were fabulous, and the company was awesome.
