Expedition Evans FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Sea Pass

Crew Members

Brett Evans (age 32)

Jade Evans (age 28)

They have been married for several years.

The Boat

Expedition Evans has a 2008 Beneteau 49 (registration number 4JH4-TE) that they salvaged.

It didn’t have a mast as it was damaged and they bought it at an insurance auction.


There have been many upgrades and repairs that have been necessary on their boat which included a new mast and electronics. Hard work certainly pays off!


They were working on their boat in Miami, Florida but recently arrived in The Bahamas:

This means they are currently slightly behind on their videos.

Past Cruising

Much of their channel has been focused on their boat restoration project, so they haven’t really explored more than the United States for a shakedown cruise.

Affording It

Did Brett and Jade come from rich parents? Definitely not. Brett worked as a pilot while Jade was a photographer. They didn’t have much money but fortunately were able to win their yacht at auction. They did have to put a lot of sweat equity into restoring their boat from the ground up and something that most people aren’t willing to do.

Net Worth

YouTubers typically do well for themselves.

As of 2023, Expedition Evans has amassed a net worth of $720,000.

This is based on their boat valuation, personal savings and business income.

Making Loot

How does Expedition Evans make money? Well, there are several ways:

➜ Referrals to life insurance quotes

➜ Using Amazon links to the gear they use

➜ Selling their own awesome merchandise

➜ Donations via Patreon and PayPal

From this, they make around $5,700/month.


I haven’t seen them on any other YouTube channels but they remind me a lot of Sailing Parlay Revival and Sailing Uma.

Big Moments

Apart from the retrofit, incidents in their journey include:

➜ Experiencing a boat fire with Sailing Naida

➜ Getting caught in a lightning storm in their

➜ Having multiple meltdowns due to boat work

The bigger challenges are yet to come on the ocean for these two. 🙂

Future Plans

Where to next? Well, now that the boat is officially ready, they plan on sailing the Caribbean and later, the South Pacific.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this ambitious couple?

➜ Life is so short so make the most of today

➜ The cheapest boats are those that are damaged

➜ Make yourself willing to get your hands dirty

➜ You CAN work remotely, starting today

And for the gentlemen…find a beautiful mermaid just like Jade. 😍


I absolutely adore these two! They work so well together in their episodes and I can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon.
