Anniversaries in Destin on the SOLARIS | Jim and Gail Murray

In the last 11 years, SunQuest Cruises has done over 1,500 Destin Fla weddings, 400 corporate events, birthdays and hundreds of other memorable events. This past weekend, the SunQuest Cruises family celebrated a great moment onboard the SOLARIS, the 50th wedding anniversary of the founders of the company, Jim and Gail Murray.
Gail and Jim were married in 1965. With his company Freeport Shipbuilding Inc, Jim Murray has been building boats since 1978 and had already constructed 66 yachts similar to the Solaris yacht. Together with their son James, the Murrays launched SunQuest Cruises in 2004. It took a family effort to get the company to where it is today. Gail remembers her daughters, sisters and mom folding napkins and spending holidays like New Year’s and Mother’s Day on the Solaris yacht. The Murrays also placed an importance in giving back to the community in which they live and work.
The family business has flourished over the years, featuring the region’s only dining and entertainment Solaris yacht, adding the SunVenture motor Catamaran for leisure dolphin and Crab Island cruises and offering off-site catering and beach weddings.
Congratulations on 50 amazing years and here’s to 50 more!
