About Wright Yachts

About Wright Yachts

It all began at age six, on Percy Priest Lake in Tennessee, when my father let me take the helm of his O’Day 23.

Back then, it was mostly mandatory duty as crew, with short respites in the water. Over time, though, sailing’s influence would grow from a mere hobby into a passion.

In the ensuing years, I’ve owned several racing and cruising-class boats. My journeys on the water have taken me to the San Juan Islands, Canada’s Gulf Islands, the Gulf of Mexico, the Virgin Islands and Sardinia.

Prior to founding Wright Yachts, I spent more than two decades in marketing and advertising for such notable clients as Alaska Airlines, Johnston & Murphy Shoes, Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Western Digital.

My experiences helping clients, and my passion for boating have been instrumental in allowing me to do what I really love— helping people achieve their dreams.
