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 a year and travelled 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

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...

Wonderful Stay in Key West.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best way to have your cake and eat it too. Close to downtown Key West but stay on a yatch and experience marina and boat life. The boat is very comfortable with all the amenities and the owner are extremely nice and accommodating. Paddle boards, kayaks, bicycles, golf cart, everything you need!

Do it, it's a great experience.

A very special vacation our family will never forget...

  • 5 of 5

When we were searching for a venue for our wedding, we decided we wanted it to be intimate and very memorable. My (now) husband and I decided that because my 11-year-old son was going to be with us, this would be an incredible experience. It was nothing short of amazing. We booked Catchin' Moments a couple months prior. The entire process leading up to our arrival was seamless.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Presley, Gary's highly intelligent, charming daughter. Whenever we needed anything, they were always available. The location is great, although we do recommend renting a car since it is about a 15 minute drive out of the heart of Key West. The Marina Club House is directly across from the boat, making the 2 minute paddle boat across a daily adventure. And the pool is just perfect for kid playing (and adults too).

If you re looking for a low-key, family vacation, or, with friends - this is the boat. We had two friends join us mid-week for the wedding (which took place right on the club house beach. Followed by an all day cruise, it was the perfect day for our very special event.

From our family to yours, a heartfelt thank you. Memories were created we will never true meaning to the name Catchin' Moments. Thierry, Rebecca, and Cooper.

We arrived on Christmas Day for a 10 day stay on Catchin' Moments. The yacht is beautiful and well equipped for 8 people as we brought down, including our twins sons (17) and Grandparents in their seventies. Very spacious master and VIP suites, and even the bunks are spacious and all have their own bathrooms. The main saloon and kitchen are free flowing and gives plenty of room to have a lot of people onboard. Every room is up to date with the latest in moving Satellite TV and a bunch of movie channels, all on big flat screens. The fly-bridge is big enough to have a party for 30 people. PLEASE, when you look at where the marina is located, it is NOT next to Duval Street. (Thank God) However, we did go to Duval to party 5-6 of the days we were there, and there is a CAB company next door to the Marina, and we never waited more than 5 min for a cab. (Pink Cab) The Marina is soo cool and relaxing, with their own beach, clubhouse, pool, and everything you need. Even the first night we hooked up with a bunch of other friendly and fun boaters, and partied till late with them in the tiki hut at the end of the pier. Amazing scenery at this exclusive marina and again, only a 5-10 min carbide from all the craziness on Duval. Well and worth it.

We had arranged with Gary (the owner) to go on 4-5 days of cruising while we were there, pending the weather. We had to re-arrange the dates due to high winds a couple of days, none the less all of our trips (AND MUCH MORE) was completed. Gary was flexible for our every need, and his other smaller boats (with his kids Presley and Garran) and Captain Mike took care of our kids in ways I cannot even start to explain. They took them wake boarding, diving/snorkeling fishing, Lobster diving and so much more. This family are the nicest people you will ever meet, and it is really hard to truly describe all the experiences we had in 10 days. This might sound like this was our first vacation, but both our kids and our family are world travelers, and have literally done most things when it comes to traveling around the world. However, BY FAR, the best vacation we have ever had, and have already decided to go back to see our new friends. I wish there were more stars than 5 to give. EXCEPTIONAL.

Once of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The yacht was fabulous . We came for the lobster mini season and maxed out both days on their 34' center console with Captain Mike. This was the best vacation we have ever had. Presley the manager planned everything for us. She is the best. Can't wait for next year.
