New Orleans, LA
The Natchez is a beautiful sternwheeler cruising in the harbor of New Orleans. Since 1975 she is the place to have dance, music and dinner while steamin' around for a couple of hours.
She was built in 1975 by the Bergeron Machine Shop, Braithwaite, LA, for the New Orleans Steamboat Co. designed by Alan L. Bates, Louisville, KY. Her engines came from the U.S. Steel´s towboat Clairton (former Youghiogheny built in 1927). She was launched on March 8, 1975 with her trial run on April 2, 1975. Her long time master has been Capt. Clarke (Doc) Hawley.
The Natchez has its own homepage: www.steamboatnatchez.com.
