The Cruising Freedom Author

Ahoy, Matey! I’m Joshua from Australia.

I’ve built the perfect business to sail the world.

A business model which can allow me to:

➜ Own a catamaran debt-free

➜ Go for weeks without WIFI

➜ Create semi-passive income

➜ Inspire others to dream big

But more on that later… 🙂


Sailing and Fun FAQs (October 2022)

Boat Name

Her boat doesn’t have a name.

Crew Members

I’ve tried super hard to find the girls’ name and if she is married. She goes by the name ‘T’ on Vimeo and is 29 years old. If you have details about her Instagram, please let me know!

She is married and has two dogs.

The Boat

They have a trailer sailor which is a 1991 MacGregor 26X

Location

They are currently in the Florida Keys.

Past Cruising

Most of her cruising has been in the Bahamas and Florida.

Affording It

Her husband worked hard to buy their boat. They are only part-time liveaboards as they live in a normal house in Miami.

Net Worth

Sailing and Fun has a net worth of $370,000.

Making Loot

Sailing and Fun make $7,400/month on YouTube by:

➜ Selling her own swimsuit calendars

➜ Offering a Patreon membership

➜ Ads on her videos (but I think she got demonetized?)

Her biggest revenue stream appears to be uncut footage via Vimeo. Her filming camera definitely needs an upgrade though, it feels like it came straight from 2013. 🙂

Collaborations

I haven’t seen her on any other channels, but she seems to be inspired by Lazy Gecko and Barefoot Sailing Adventures.

Future Plans

They aren’t planning to sail around the world or go too far from Florida. After all, the channel is about bikini and nudist content rather than cruising and crossing oceans.

Conclusion

While I don’t agree on the strategy, it appears to be working for her.

8 Best Chartplotters For Long Distance Navigation

If you’re doing coastal cruising or offshore passages, it’s no longer accepted by the sailing community to merely have a map and sextant. Instead, you should be reaching for some real technology that has become remarkably cheaper over the years.

For me – it’s difficult to even consider anything other than a Chartplotter these days.

So with that in mind, I’ll be covering some of the best chartplotters for long-distance sailing and liveaboard cruising.

Let’s begin.

1. B&G Vulcan 7

The B&G Vulcan 7 is a Chartplotter with an easy-to-use 7” multi-touch screen to help with navigation while sailing. The Vulcan 7 is designed to be intuitive for sailors of every experience level, with features similar to a smartphone or tablet. 

The Vulcan 7 will safely guide sailors to their destination with clear, real-time graphics and data. It is durable, compact, and even has a convenient auto-pilot system.

2. Raymarine Axiom

The Raymarine Axiom series uses touch screen multifunction navigation displays to provide all the features necessary for easy long-distance navigation. 

Raymarine Axiom has three different display options. The Axiom 7 has a 7” display with built-in DownVision and 600W sonar. The Axiom 9 has a 9” display with built-in 3D RealVision and 600W Sonar. Finally, the Axiom 12 has a 12.1” display with built-in 3D RealVision and 600W Sonar.

3. Garmin Striker 4 

The Garmin Striker 4 has a 3.5” display with built-in, high-sensitivity GPS. The Striker 4 provides smooth navigation with features such as advanced scanning sonar technology. This CHIRP sonar technology sends a continuous sweep of frequencies to help users keep track of everything surrounding them. 

The Striker 4 also allows users to upgrade to high-performance Garmin CHIRP technology which provides clear sonar images with better resolution.

4. B&G Zeus 3S Chartplotter

The B&G Zeus 3S Chartplotter boasts several convenient features for safe and easy long-distance navigation. The Zeus 3S Chartplotter has a high-performance processor that delivers the information with a fast response. Its full, multi-touch display has top-level features for premium clarity. It works well in both bright, rainy, and windy weather conditions.

The Zeus 3S Chartplotter can also be connected with other devices such as a smartphone or tablet for screen sharing. 

5. Simrad GO7 XSE Chartplotter

The Simrad GO9 XSE Chartplotter has an easy-to-use touchscreen display. Its high brightness enables sailors to see the screen even in direct sunlight. The GO9 XSE Chartplotter has ForwardScan sonar for navigation, as well as Broadband Sounder CHIRP Sonar for fish-finding. 

This Chartplotter has four options of screen sizes, with choices of 5”, 7”, 9”, and 12” displays. Customers can also choose between three Transducer options, or none: Active Imaging 3-in-1, Med/High HDI, or TotalScan. 

6. Garmin EchoMAP With 63cv

The Garmin EchoMAP 63cv Chartplotter has a bright, 6” screen that is easy to read even in direct sunlight. It includes a GT20 transducer for Garmin CHIRP traditional sonar. With built-in ClearVU CHIRP, this Chartplotter provides clear HD images of everything surrounding the user’s boat, whether underwater or above. 

The EchoMAP 63cv can also be connected to a compatible mobile device through Garmin’s ActiveCaptain mobile app. With this tool, users can manage their marine navigation from anywhere.

7. Garmin EchoMap

The Garmin EchoMap is a neat and affordable little screen. This Chartplotter comes with a compact 6.2-inch screen with physical input buttons for navigation. They also have a quick-release ball mount for ease of access and movement and the screen works great even on the brightest days on the water.

The best part is these screens are one of the most affordable on this list.

8. Garmin GPSMap 8612xsv

The Garmin GPSMap 8612xsv is another top-level Garmin Chartplotter. It has an easy-to-use and easy-to-install system with a Chartplotter/sonar combination that delivers a multi-function display. It can be either flat-mounted or flush-mounted, either of which creates a stunning helm.

This Chartplotter is available in three different sizes, with choices of 10”, 12”, or 16” displays. It can also come with an optional Grid 20 Remote Control that provides users with remote access and control of the entire Garmin marine system.

7 Best Sailing Jackets That Won’t Cost A Fortune

A quality sailing jacket is one product that’ll make or break your perfect day out there on the water. Choosing the right one can be difficult, but we’ve made that a little easier.

Our options are best for those who routinely go sailing and need a quality wind blocker, but aren’t sailing in difficult storms or multi-day races.

We have used and recommend:

1. Helly-Hansen Seven J Sailing Jacket

The Helly-Hansen brand is reliable and typically expensive, but this option is affordable while delivering the quality this brand is known for. The seven J sailing jacket is perfect for days when it’s not too cold, and the conditions aren’t tumultuous. It consists of polyamide waterproof construction, has a reflective surface, and is specifically designed for sailing. 

This jacket is breathable, which is crucial when you start sweating in cold weather, but it is also windproof, which ensures you stay warm when it really matters. It has multiple storage pockets, is machine washable, and you can wear it underneath or on top of additional layers. 

2. Wind Rider Pro Rain Sailing Jacket

We’ll start this list of the best sailing jackets with a jacket from Wind Rider, which is a reputable brand, and the sailing products are durable. You can use the Wind Rider Pro Rain jacket in various climates and trust that you’ll get protected from harsh elements such as rain, heavy winds, and more. The jacket has a high-visibility color available and is made from reflective materials that make it easier to see in emergencies, such as calling for help or falling overboard. 

For days particularly windy and cold, sailors will appreciate the high collar, which prohibits water from gathering in the hood and seeping down the jacket. Additionally, there’s a face cover and an insulated lining on the collar. The jacket is breathable yet waterproof and has a comfortable fit that makes room for additional layers underneath (though you don’t need more layers to feel warm). 

3. Baleaf Waterproof Sailing Jacket

The Baleaf waterproof sailing jacket is lightweight and ideal for mild winter weather conditions. You can wear it underneath a dry suit or on top of other layers of fleece to keep you warm. This jacket will keep you dry in moderate rain and from the chilly ocean spray early in the mornings or during torrential winds. 

The polyester fiber is durable and also laminated. It has six pockets, some of which are on the interior and the others on the exterior. The insulated hood has a unique design to prevent water from dripping onto your face, and the jacket comes in various colors. 

4. Columbia Men’s Packable Sailing Jacket

Another one of the best sailing jackets is the Columbia Men’s sailing jacket. It is a lightweight nylon material that looks stylish, feels comfortable, and can protect you I’m cold and rainy weather. The best conditions for this jacket are chilly summer evenings out on the water. 

You wouldn’t want something terribly heavy, but you also want to protect yourself from the brisk winds. The Columbia jacket is water-resistant, comes in six colors, and has storage pockets for your essential items. 

5. Little Donkey Andy Sailing Jacket

The Little Donkey Andy sailing jacket is excellent for moderate weather on the water. It comes in multiple colors ranging from bright yellow and red to dark colors such as navy blue. It has an outer shell that is waterproof and windproof, pockets lined with fleece to keep your hands warm, and retro-reflective piping along the sleeves. 

The zippers have pull tabs, the high collar prevents water from dripping down your back from the hood, and it fits comfortably. This flexible and lightweight jacket is durable nylon material and is unisex as well. 

6. Helly-Hansen Midlayer Sailing Jacket

Another Helly-Hansen classic, the midlayer sailing jacket is the perfect offshore accessory to help you stay dry and warm. This jacket has a water repellent exterior, uses moisture management technology, has deep cargo pockets to protect your valuables, and even anti-corrosion zippers. 

The material is breathable, lightweight, and durable, so you don’t have to worry about surprise leaks while in use. The hood has an insulated lining, the collar is thermal fleece material, and a chin guard comes built into the jacket. Offshore or coastal sailing is easier when wearing the midlayer sailing jacket. 

7. 8 Fans Waterproof Sailing Jacket

If you’re going out sailing and you’ve already checked the weather and know not to expect anything too severe, the 8 fans waterproof jacket is an excellent choice. It has two large waterproof pockets, it’s wind-resistant, and consists of a breathable fabric that still traps warmth. 

You can sail confidently knowing that your torso, neck, and face will be covered in the case of moderate winds and rain, and it’s not bulky. The hood is retractable in case you want a more comfy fit, and you get pockets on the sleeves for items like a phone, keys, and more. This jacket is well-balanced and affordable.

I’ve built the perfect business to sail the world.

A business model which can allow me to:

➜ Own a catamaran debt-free

➜ Go for weeks without WIFI

But more on that later… 🙂


YBS Youngbloods FAQs (October 2022)

Boat Name

His boat doesn’t have a name.

Crew Members

Brodie Wayne Moss who is 31 years old from Western Australia.

Victoria Ferreira who is 27 years old and is from Argentina. They have been dating for around 18 months.

Stryda is their dog.

The Boat

YBS Youngbloods owns a 2020 Genesis Craft 750XD with Cuddy Cabin that’s powered by Mercury 200HP outboards for offshore cruising.

The value of this boat is $250,000 Australian dollars, or around $180,000 US dollars.

This boat is only available for purchase in Australia, although they now export it internationally given the popularity of the YouTube channel.

Upgrades

Location

YBS Youngbloods are from Exmouth, Western Australia but does a lot of fishing on the Ningaloo Reef near Broome.

This is where the majority of their videos are filmed.

I do have Brodie Moss’ address (he lives on a rural property) but I have opted against sharing it publicly.

That said, with international borders reopened, he isn’t home that much and has started venturing further afield with his recent videos:

Past Cruising

In the past, they have explored many spots around Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Affording It

Brodie simply worked hard for his dream and through persistence, was able to become a full-time YouTuber in just a few years.

This is a direct result of the hard work and perseverance that he brings to the table, but his beautiful girlfriend has probably helped gain a few extra clicks… 😉

Making Loot

Brodie from YBS Youngbloods makes up to $20,000/month through creating YouTube videos.

But how exactly?

➜ He sells his own official merchandise

➜ He sells his own branded spearfishing gear

➜ YouTube plays ads on his channel (they pay well!)

➜ He also has a loyal Patreon community

On occasion, he accepts brand sponsors but is very picky and selective.

Collaborations

I haven’t seen him with any other YouTubers, but many of his fans (including myself) also watch Back 2 Basics Adventures on YouTube.

Big Moments

Things haven’t gone easy in their journey, with the worst experience being that their boat sunk.

Future Plans

Where to next? Brodie recently had all his 4×4 completed and they’re ready to travel around Australia. We’re certainly excited to see him come over to Queensland and shoot some epic content!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this legend?

➜ Be willing to do what others won’t

➜ Share your life but keep it authentic

➜ You can definitely work online in 2022

And of course, find a beautiful European girlfriend… 🙃

Conclusion

I’m not sure about you, but Brodie has inspired me to work harder and live every day like it were my last.

And it’s something I hope inspires you to create your very own freedom, just like myself and Brodie.

Captain Scarlegs FAQs (October 2022)

Boat Name

S/V Haphazard

Crew Members

Captain Scarlegs’ real name is Hendrick de Jong. He is 52 years old and lives in Fiji.

He blew up on YouTube after his first video went viral and garnered 1m+ views:

He’s only created 8 or so videos and has 10,000 subscribers. We all love his content as it’s real, raw and authentic sailing without bikinis or bragging.

His wife in Fiji is a food blogger.

The Boat

Captain Scarlegs has a 1994 Radford 14 racing yacht designed by Graham Radform and built by Nick Edmunds.

Upgrades

He is currently upgrading his yacht and its electronics, hence why he hasn’t been on Youtube for some time. He is also enjoying his time away from the camera

Location

He lives in Fiji and this is where the boat is based. Previously he lived in Australia and this is where he bought his boat.

Past Cruising

He has sailed competitively in numerous places and most of his sailing has been in the South Pacific.

Affording It

Captain Scarlegs is retired after years of working hard for his sailing dream.

Net Worth

Captain Scarlegs has a net worth of $320,000 Australian dollars.

Making Loot

He hasn’t tried to make money on YouTube, but does receive some support via Patreon and some revenue generated from YouTube ad

Collaborations

I haven’t seen him on any other YouTube channels. Additionally, he is very unique and I haven’t found other channels that are similar.

Big Moments

His biggest experience was sailing his dream yacht back home…all by himself! And of course, surviving a Tsunami.

He also dislocated his shoulder once after falling off a pontoon.

Future Plans

He plans to sail around the South Pacific.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this Australian sailing enthusiast?

➜ A racing boat can be used for cruising

➜ Be prepared to do your own boat research

➜ You can blow up on YouTube without click-bait

➜ Be willing to share your wins and failures

And of course, there is no time like the present!

Conclusion

What a journey he has had! Captain Scarlegs has been missing off YouTue for months and I do he returns.

Just like you, I’m thrilled that he bought this boat and is looking after it, but more importantly, he focuses on sailing and not the bikini shots or sailing drama that other channels create.

Sailing Coco FAQs (October 2022)

Boat Name

S/V Coco

Crew Members

Alfie and Ceylan Kioufi who are both 34 years old.

They are both from the United Kingdom, and Ceylan’s name is pronounced as ‘Jaylan’, not ‘Seelan’.

The Boat

Sailing Coco has a 2020 Fountaine Pajot – Lucia 40 Catamaran in the popular owner’s cabin layout.

Previous to this, they owned a 33ft Colvic Countess

Upgrades

They have upgraded her past the base level with improved electronics, water maker and additional solar panels.

Location

They are currently in the British Virgin Islands and plan to stay here for some time.

They flew to England to catch up with family members.

Past Cruising

They have sailed in the Mediterranean, United States and most recently, the British Virgin Islands. They have also been apart of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, otherwise known as ‘The Arc’.

Affording It

Alfie and Ceylan are some of the hardest workers I know.

They have worked since they were both teenagers and sought to find their freedom in their 30’s.

They worked full time jobs, renovated properties in their spare time (property flipping) and ran a photography studio business too. They talk about that journey here:

It was really through hard work and determination that they were able to purchase their own catamaran at such a young age. No cheats. No gimmicks. No rich parents either.

That hard work has led them to where they are today. Not much of that hustle around nowadays where young people typically want instant results.

They definitely play the long game and kept consistently working towards their end game. You can see their determination and calmness shine through in their sailing vlogs, and I admire them greatly!

Net Worth

Sailing Coco has a net worth of $1,300,000 considering the value of their boat and business income.

Making Loot

Sailing Coco makes $2,700/month on YouTube by:

➜ Running a Patreon account

➜ Allowing ads on their channel

➜ Recommendations to camera gear

➜ Selling their own Coco merchandise

This is just enough to look after the monthly boat expenses. They also work remotely.

Collaborations

Apart from hanging out with friends, they haven’t really hung out with any other YouTubers.

If you’re seeking some similar channels to watch, then I recommend checking out Sailing Uma and Sailing Yacht Florence. They’re also young couples who decided to sell up and go cruising.

Big Moments

In the last few years, they have experienced:

➜ Rescuing a demasted sailor at sea (I watched the whole thing…it was epic!)

➜ They got married in Cyprus and it was a beautiful experience

➜ Numerous challenges with bureaucracy and interrupts to their travel plans

They seem to take this all in their stride.

Future Plans

From the BVI’s, they are planning to go to the South Pacific. This may take them a couple of years to reach as they’re having a ton of fun. 🙂

Key Takeaways

We can learn a ton from this down-to-earth couple:

➜ Work your butt off in your 20’s

➜ Be willing to take calculated risks

➜ Find a wonderful partner who supports you

➜ You can definitely work remotely

Start planting your roots right now.

Conclusion

I have really enjoyed watching their channel and they deserve a ton more subscribers. They’re just genuine sailors who want to share their world with us.
