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
This was the most relaxing and memorable birthday experience that my hubby arranged for my birthday with the New Orleans Yacht Experience team.
Captain Doug is so down to earth and knowledgeable about the history of the Lake and the area. He picked us up from the designated area and drove us to the Lakefront docking area. He was talking to us and making us feel welcome already before we got to their beautiful Roux Stir. His sailing skills and style is so relaxing and amazing. Rena! Rena! What a beautiful amazing lady who took care of us on board serving us drinks, snacks and of course her homemade delicious ginger cookies and caprese skewers were awesome. Captain Doug and Rena were so prepared for us and made me feel so special on my birthday. It was a very relaxing one of a kind sailing experience. The boat is so beautiful, well kept and very clean and the whole arrangement was spectacular including their music selection. We will go back again to unwind and relax from time to time and we will highly recommend their service to our Nola peeps and out of town guests. Thank you for the wonderful experience and outstanding service. Looking forward already for the next round.
If we could give them more stars, we would. Every aspect of the sail was top notch. Service was awesome, Captain Doug and Rena are great hosts and cruising the lake is a beautiful way to see New Orleans. Just a fantastic experience.
An invigorating detour from the well-trodden tourist paths of New Orleans.
