Robert Wright


Rob’s passion for boating began at age six, when his father let him take the helm of an O’Day 23. More recently, Rob has sailed Alaska to Southern California, the Virgin Islands, Sardinia, Norway, and most of the Gulf and Mid Atlantic coasts.

Prior to starting Wright Yachts, Rob spent more than two decades in marketing, collaborating with noteworthy clients, including Alaska Airlines and Ritz-Carlton Hotels.

When not working, Rob enjoys sailing, skiing and hiking with his wife Amelia, son Zac and their Rottweiler, “Peaches”.

Scott Wallingford

Service Manager

Scott started hoisting sails at seven years of age when his dad took him for a trip off the coast of California on a McGregor 26. Scott’s obsession with boating led him to a career in boatyards and mechanics in 2008. He’s since competed in international boating races including the Race to Alaska (where he placed 4th overall) and the Phuket’s King’s Cup in Thailand (where Scott placed 1st in the cruising multihull division).

Scott loves scouring far and wide for great sailboats. And it will come as no surprise that when he’s not helping Wright Yacht customers discover the best boat for their needs, he enjoys sailing with his son, Brad.

Tyler Ling

Expert Mechanic

Tyler discovered sailing after leaving college in search of excitement. His love of the sea developed through work on a variety of schooners, tall ships, wooden boats, fishing vessels, monohulls, and catamarans. Tyler is a skilled woodworker and expert of exterior maintenance, rigging, and sail repair.

Tyler has traveled the world on the water and built a career around it. Some of his favorite trips include sailing the Caribbean, the tropics, and anywhere he doesn’t have cell service.
