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 long distance cruising and sailing across the blue water ocean. Roux Stir’s weight is 12 tons which indicates STABILITY. Those scared of sailing on most boats will feel comfortable when sailing on Roux Stir. This boat performs wonderfully when the wind kicks up. http://NewOrleansYacht.com
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.
What a great experience. My wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary in New Orleans and this sunset sail was the cherry on top. Doug was a great captain. If you’re looking for something unique to do while visiting NOLA this should be on your list.
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.
