The Cruising Freedom Author

A business model which can allow me to:

But more on that later… 🙂

Josje Maxime Leyton FAQs (April 2023)

I have done my best to make this article as accurate as possible. If you have additional information about Josje’s whereabouts, please email me.

Crew Member

Josje Maxime Leyton (age 33) from New Zealand.


After separating from Brady (who has recently started Cruiser’s Academy), she then went for a short holiday.

Within a couple of months, she was cruising with Riley and Elayna from Sailing La Vagabonde. She really came alive here where her energy bounced off Elayna’s so well!

She only spent one week with them on the catamaran.

After this time, she did some soul-searching while creating her Rama Tree brand focused on alternative arts. This has subsequently done very little.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, she spent time doing van life in Australia and continuing to live nomadically.

Her travel plans were interrupted in 2020 due to the Pandemic.

Josje Leyton has now been missing from social media now for 12+ months. No one has really heard anything since and many feel as though their best friend from Delos had suddenly vanished.

Her last video on YouTube was a little strange:

She also had her comments section turned off which is even more concerning.

Past Cruising

Josje essentially cruised around from New Zealand to Australia, up to SE Asia and Madagascar, where she eventually left Brady.

This was her last episode on Delos:

Some consider that Brady was somewhat lazy and wasn’t able to financially support her. They did some crewing on superyachts which neither seemed to enjoy all that much.

Affording It

Josje was a backpacker at heart. She earned some money through freelance writing and eventually became one of the main video editors on Delos.

In addition, she took on jobs in the cruising off-season to build her funds back up again.

Net Worth

Josje Maxime Leyton’s net worth is a mere $97,000. She never focused on money and made just enough to get to the next port.

Making Loot

Most recently, she made her money through:

➜ Selling her art and jewelry online (Rama Tree)

➜ Running a Patreon account (since closed)

➜ She also worked odd jobs in retail

She was definitely against capitalism and frequently sought spiritual refuges.


Apart from Delos and La Vagabonde, was she on any other episode? I can’t recall personally, but if you have seen her elsewhere, please let me know.

Big Moments

Her biggest moment was leaving Brady which was quite emotional.

Future Plans

It’s hard to know what she plans to do next. Is she pregnant? Did she find a new boyfriend? Is she at an Ashram in India?

I’ll be sure to update this article the moment I have more information about Josje. 🙂

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this beautiful soul?

➜ Aim to always live in the moment (it’s pure joy!)

➜ Allow what comes to come and see what remains

➜ Let go of the emotional baggage holding you back

➜ The end of one journey is the beginning of another

And of course, we only live once. Make the most of today.


This beautiful soul captivated the hearts of many on Delos. She was one-of-a-kind and really made the crew complete.

Personally, their journey just wasn’t the same when she left. And while I did enjoy her on Riley and Elayna’s channel, I was secretly hoping she would get back with Brady.

She emphasized true freedom. Not just lifestyle freedom but spiritual and emotional freedom. She took us into a world few of us ever experienced, and we came out feeling better on the other side.

I do hope she returns to the world someday. In the meantime, I’ll be working on my own cruising plans.
