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

A business model which can allow me to:

But more on that later… 🙂

Harbors Unknown FAQs (April 2023)

Crew Members

Yoda is their dog.

The Boat

Harbors Unknown have a 2020 Seawind 1600 catamaran.

This is one of my favourite catamarans, and my next boat will be the 1190 Sport version.

Strangely enough, very few other YouTubers have chosen Seawind catamarans, but the most popular are Sailing Ruby Rose.


They have upgraded their boat with several options from the Seawind catalogue.


They are currently in The Bahamas and plan to stay here for some time. It does appear that they’re relatively up to date on their YouTube videos.

Past Cruising

They have previously sailed through most of the United States but this was on previous monohulls that they owned.

Affording It

Fabio worked as a marketing officer while Kristin worked at an advertising agency. They were stuck in the daily grind but without children, they were able to save up enough to purchase their catamaran for cash.

Previous to this, they owned a Beneteau Oceanhis 473 and a Dragonfly 35 Trimaran.

Net Worth

Harbors Unknown has a net worth of $1,570,000.

This is estimated based on the value of their boat, business income and assumed personal savings.

Making Loot

They do take their content on YouTube seriously and do make around $4,500/month off the channel.

They do this through:

➜ Using Amazon affiliate links

➜ Allowing ads on their videos

➜ Running a Patreon account

They do have a sponsorship deal with BetterHelp. With their number of subscribers, it’s a good time to reach out for more sponsorship deals.


I haven’t seen them with any other YouTubers, but they did hang out with Cruising World at the Annapolis Boat Show:

Big Moments

They have been fortunate to have a relatively easy journey so far. Of course, I wish them safe winds and following seas.

Future Plans

Their next plan is to head to the South Pacific and eventually make their way to Australia.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this beautiful couple?

➜ It’s OK to buy an expensive catamaran

➜ You need to shop around (as I’ve done!)

➜ Plan for the future, but start it all today

➜ Find someone who’ll share your wanderlust

And of course, don’t sail with a schedule.


While they might be small on YouTube, they’re on a Seawind! These vessels are light, fast and affordable.

I’m surprised that so many YouTubers aren’t choosing these boats. I know I certainly will be!

Until then…
