About Gary Wright

We bought this boat two years ago in Los Angeles hoping to fulfill a lifetime dream of travel and exploring new places. With my wife and two kids, we took the boat to Alaska for three months and cruised the Southeast passage, which surpassed all our dreams. After arriving back in L.A. we headed south through the Panama Canal and up to Key West, her home port now. We actually lived on the boat for over a year and traveled 10,000 miles filled with excitement and adventure! These are memories we will never forget and look forward to future travels!

Gary Wright purchased this yacht in 2013

Everything was great. Quite the trip. The ship was great. The whole family enjoyed themselves. We went to the Turtle Hospital on Marathon for a tour...really worth the trip. Key West is always a great time. We chartered the smaller boat for snorkeling and sunset and the next morning for fishing. Great catch. Thanks again

Best in Key West-can’t wait until next year.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best secret in the Keys. We went fishing,

snorkeling and did a sunset cruise. Mike, Presley and Gary were great hosts and took care of all I needs. Not a nicer place in Key West.

Fortunate to grab several nights on the "Catching Moments" with my children and older brother.

We came from all different directions to have special moments with plenty of space. The kids loved the boat so much they kept telling me that they were ready to get back to it when we were out and about. Used the kitchen and the entire space. Didn't want to leave.

Presley was entirely informative and connecting at every turn. We decided to take a late afternoon trip out on one of their other boats and by the time we got back I was telling myself over and over that I was so glad we made the choice to do so. Captain Mike was phenomenal as well.

We will be back sooner then later and like usual, I was wanting more nights. It's never long enough. It was really nice that the area was nice and quiet with few around. The kids took advantage of the pool and other amenities. Truly fantastic. Thank you so much. See you soon.

Tons of fun

  • 5 of 5

We rented the boat for a family get together to celebrate my sons life who passed away last year. We needed space for eight adults, wanted to stay together and did not want to rent four hotel rooms. Catchin Moments worked perfectly. The boat is beautiful and the family that owns it, even more beautiful. Presley and Mike were the bomb and we can't thank you enough for everything you did for us.

The Wright family are class people and fantastic hosts !

Epic WIN choice for parents of young adults

  • 5 of 5

Annual family holiday trip with four young adults in their mid/early 20s. Catchin' Moments was spacious for 6 people with plenty of community space, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It is docked at the BEST slip in the marina...gorgeous views and it is right across from Key West Harbour's club house, small beach and pool. Gorgeous sunset views from the main bow of the yacht, with stunning sunset views from the upper deck. Several dining areas, 2 on main and one on upper deck. Upper deck also has great sundeck with 4 chaise loungers...plenty of beach towels onboard. Master suite with king bed was spacious with en-suite shower and a walk-in closet. Queen suite with en-suite bath was perfect for our daughters. Two additional bunkrooms. Wonderful kitchen with large griddle and a keurig machine. Yacht has 4 bikes, 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards and, most importantly, a six-seat golf cart. Golf cart is important when getting from the dock area to the main marina gate to meet taxi cabs (Key West has not allowed uber to enter their market...had we known we would have arranged for an on-call driver). Drive into Key West proper/Duval Street is 15 minutes. We did arrange for two fun trips out on the 34' center console with Captain Mike and Presley. At Presley's suggestion, we paused to watch the sun set over the water on the first trip. Catchin' Moments owner, Gary, was very gracious and quick to respond to any questions/needs. As information, a locals' favorite Hogfish Bar & Grill is a convenient golf cart drive from the marina, as is Roostica Pizza...deemed by all the drivers as the BEST pizza in Key West. Be sure and stop in at Crossiants de France bakery around the building from Roostica. There is a Publix grocery store (short cab ride) nearby for the necessary provisions like Champagne and Keurig pods. Walgreens and CVS pharmacies are nearby, as well. Thank you to Gary, Presley and the family for sharing your family yacht. Hoping to return, in the future, for a yacht trip to Cuba.

First off upon arriving we were amazed at what a perfect beautiful, clean yacht this was. Presley was great going over and beyond with making sure to answer any questions we had and to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. On one of our days there we rented the fishing/diving boat and Gary and Presley took us out and we had a great time catching fish and snorkeling. The views and the area are one of a kind and just amazing. I highly recommend

this experience. I will go again...
