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 Dark Angel FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Dark Angel

Crew Members

David Kerr (age 49)

Lisa Kerr (age 46)

They are born originally from Canada and enjoy their freedom by sailing around the world. It’s something they’re truly passionate about.

They do have children, although both are adults now.

The Boat

Sailing Dark Angel has a 2006 Island Spirit Fortunate 401 catamaran.


Their boat needed some work and they’ve added:

➜ Acuva water purifier

➜ iCom VHF radio and AIS

➜ Harken 44ST power winch


They are currently in Norman’s Cay:

Past Cruising

They have sailed around the United States and Bahamas so far, with their eyes on the South Pacific or the Mediterranean in the future.

Affording It

David and Lisa come from corporate America and saved hard for their simple yet capable ocean-capable catamaran.

Net Worth

Sailing Dark Angel has a net worth of $470,000.

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

Making Loot

Sailing Dark Angel makes a small amount on YouTube through:

➜ Selling their own merchandise

➜ Allowing advertisers on their channel

I estimate this is around $700/month.

They owned a corporate training business previously and live off the cash from the sale of this.


I’m pretty sure they haven’t been featured on any other channels, but if you have seen them, let me know and I can update this article.

Big Moments

Their journey has been pretty easy, and apart from their power winch failing once, there hasn’t been anything else that has thrown them off their journey.

Future Plans

They’re slow-cruisers and have sailed mostly around the United States and Bahamas, but are planning to head further afield in the next few years. Global circumnavigation? Perhaps!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this beautiful couple?

➜ Build a business. Sell it. Go cruising!

Really – that’s it! And it’s exactly what I’m doing too.


I would say that Dave and Lisa are one of the smallest influencers on YouTube, but get a HUGE tick of approval from me. Their videos are simple and without the click-bait drama to get views.

I really am looking forward to seeing where they go cruising in the near future.
