Reviews for Municipal Yacht Harbor
Still under repair, 2012-11-11
Captain: , jackson, TN (884)

6 years after Katrina they still haven't rebuilt the marina. Seems politics trumps boats here.



late 2008 visit, 2010-03-08
Captain: , Lakeside, Montana (442)

heavily damaged by Katrina. if you could find a useable slip, no charge. no services. step carefully



Municipal Yacht Harbor, 2007-12-27
Captain: , Hite, Utah (15667)

When you consider that this harbor is currently free (12/27/07), that the remaining docks are solid, and finding a slip for a larger than average boat in the New Orleans area is impossible this is a great marina if you can generate your own electricity or get by without electricity.
