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… 🙂

Cruising Alba FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Alba

Crew Members

Marina Popova (age 32)

Myles Munroe (age 33)

Both Myles and Marina aren’t married nor engaged at this time.

Both are Ukrainian/British and enjoy their tiny home on the water.

The Boat

They have a 62-foot narrowboat while being just under 7 feet wide.

They have been cruising for 4 years constantly now.


They have added a heater and generator.


They are on the UK canals where there are more canals than in Venice!

Past Cruising

They haven’t ventured into the open ocean but enjoy their life on the river.

Affording It

Myles and Marina worked normal jobs and saved on the side.

Sick of paying rent, they decided to purchase their boat for cash, put in some time for renovations and eventually untied the lines.

They now make 100% of their income with their remote jobs and profitable online business as a content creator.

Net Worth

Most YouTubers are millionaires, but this isn’t the case here.

As of 2023, Cruising Alba has a net worth of £270,000.

This is based upon the value of their narrowboat and online business.

Making Loot

They are definitely making bank as a creator.

I estimate that Cruising Alba makes around £4,500 per month.

They do this through:

➜ Ads that play on their channel

➜ Selling their own merchandise

➜ Subscriptions to Patreon

➜ Coffee donations via PayPal

They also have gigs on the side.


I haven’t seen them with any other canal boat YouTubers.

Big Moments

During their journey, they have:

➜ Gone through a snowstorm

➜ Experienced raging rivers

➜ Had some flooding events

➜ Done plenty of boat tours

And have inspired so many people along the way!

Future Plans

Myles and Marina have zero plans to stop. They’re just having way too much fun!

Key Takeaways

There’s a ton that we can learn from this beautiful couple.

In fact, this episode is so insightful:

From this, I’ve realized that:

➜ Living on the river is pure bliss

➜ There’s no moment like the present

➜ Online opportunities are out there

➜ Cruising = true freedom

And they’ve enjoyed this lifestyle for 4 years now!


Just like you, I really like their channel and hope they continue to cruise for years to come!
