(Yes, I really am *that* obsessed with Ed and Patricia 😃)

If you wanted to know:

➜ How Sailing Joy could afford a million-dollar catamaran

➜ How they make their money today

➜ What boat do they have and its upgrades

➜ If Patricia offers uncensored content

➜ How you can start crossing oceans

Then you’ve definitely come to the right place.

Before we start, a quick introduction from me…

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 Joy FAQs (January 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Sailing Joy

Crew Members

Ed Freitas (age 37)

Patricia Freitas (age 33)

They are a couple-crew although they have guests joining often. I’ve noticed that 90% of people who go cruising are couples rather than big groups or solo sailors.

I noticed their channel has the same intro music as Sailing Ruby Rose.

The Boat

Sailing Joy has a 2020 Lagoon 46. Previously they had a Lagoon 42 and upgraded for the space and stability. While it’s only an additional 4-feet, it increased their living space by 30% with the covered flybridge deck.


What upgrades have they made to their catamaran?

➜ B&G Zeus 3 Navigation Pack (Chartplotter and AIS)

➜ Garmin In Reach and Iridium Go

➜ Multiple fridges and freezers

➜ Rocna 40kg anchor (they kept their original 25kg anchor which became a spare)

They effectively have a floating condo that isn’t much different from a house, and that’s what they were aiming for.


Sailing Joy is currently in Italy.

Past Cruising

They have been sailing for a couple of years, and have explored the United States and the Mediterranean.

Affording It

Did they come from rich parents? Maybe, but Ed has built successful businesses and made some seriously smart investments to purchase their Lagoon 46.

Net Worth

Sailing Joy is worth $1,900,000 based on the value of their catamaran and personal savings.

Making Loot

They make a part-time income on YouTube through:

➜ Donations via Patreon and PayPal

➜ Running Amazon links in their description

➜ Brand sponsorships and referral links (Huusk Knives Japan is one example)

➜ They also allow ads on their YouTube channel

In total, they make around $4,600/month and this will probably increase through 2022.


They are only a small YouTube channel and at this time, they haven’t been featured on any other channels.

Big Moments

While they only recently started, some interesting things have occurred:

➜ Witnessing a fire in their marina

➜ Having their boat delivery postponed

➜ Seeing killer whales attack sail boats

Future Plans

Where to next? They’re going to explore Europe before heading for the BVI!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this beautiful couple?

➜ It’s OK to buy an expensive boat (screw the haters!)

➜ A flybridge cruiser is a lot of fun if you can afford it

➜ Don’t be afraid to upgrade your boat’s electronics

➜ Find a beautiful partner to join you on the journey

They are clearly on a mission and make no apologies. I can compare them with


I enjoy supporting smaller channels and Sailing Joy is no exception. They haven’t been around for all that long, and I can’t wait to see where their catamaran will take them in years to come!
