Helen, otherwise known as Mia Helena who is 31 years old.

Simply beautiful!

They sometimes use the handle @BikiniBuccaneer.

Ted is around 10 years older than Helen.

The Boat

Sailing Liberty owns a Starratt Jenks 45 and previously, a 1980 Mao Ta 41 Navigator.


Not only have they invested in lots of new camera gear, but they have fitted new solar panels, batteries, a new windvane, a new anchor, B&G AIS and a new rudder.


To protect their privacy, I’ve decided to withhold the location of their yacht.

Past Cruising

They have sailed in the United States and Europe.

Affording It

Ted worked in showbiz and Helen worked as a model. Together, and without children or student debts to worry about, they were able to save a small fortune to buy a house, but instead bought a boat for cash!

Talk about true freedom right there! 😃

Net Worth

Sailing Liberty has a net worth of $270,000 USD based on the value of their boat and online business.

Making Loot

Ted and Helen are open about being beginners to the world of online business and affiliate marketing, which is where they derive most of their income.

They also make some money from YouTube ads (although they get demonetized sometimes given the revealing nature of their content), plus sales of their merchandise.

The most die-hard fans also send them donations which they truly appreciate.


I haven’t seen him on any other popular YouTube channels yet.

Big Moments

During their journey, they have dealt with some storms but nothing major yet.

Future Plans

Where to next? They are planning retro fit their boat first before crossing the world’s oceans.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn?

➜ You don’t need an expensive boat

➜ Most cruising people are couples

➜ Use the resources you already have

➜ Stay humble and focused on freedom

And be willing to do the hard things.


If I can share one quote of theirs:

“Liberty and Freedom is in our blood, God given and a deepest aspiration among many of my brave country men. 🇪🇪

… but in order to be a free people in a country you have to put your own rugged individualism first.”

And they definitely embody this feeling with their channel.
