This is the definitive guide on Sailing Life on Jupiter for 2022.

Over the last 3 years, I have spent many hours watching and researching everything I could about Sailing Life on Jupiter to learn more about their story and their unique boat.

(You could definitely say I’m a little obsessed with Jamie and Princess 😃)

If you wanted to know:

➜ How Life on Jupiter afforded their boat

➜ How they make their money today

➜ What boat do they have and its upgrades

➜ Where is Princess from and does she have a sister? 😉

➜ 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 Life on Jupiter FAQs (October 2022)

Boat Name

S/V Jupiter²

Crew Members

Jamie (age 38) who is originally from Australia.

Princess (age 32) who is originally from Manila, Philippines. She was a singer in China.

I couldn’t find their last names anywhere, but I do know that Princess is her real name.

They met at a hotel in China (2018) and quit their jobs in early 2019 to sail around the world.

The Boat

Sailing Life on Jupiter has a 2019 Mumby Cyber 48 catamaran.

Unlike many YouTubers, their choice of a catamaran is quite unconventional. Jamie has owned boats before so he was after a particular type of build.

It was designed by Tim Mumby from Australia who has a small-scale builder that most of us haven’t heard of, but the design is as smart as it is functional.

Upgrades

What work have they done to make their catamaran ocean-capable? Quite a bit actually:

➜ They have upgraded their solar panels

➜ Jamie created a DIY watermaker similar to what Sailing Sunday did

➜ They had to fix their furler from the screecher

They also had to demast their catamaran to do the ICW. This is because their mast is higher than the height clearance of 56 feet.

Location

Sailing Jupiter is in Troy, New York City and they have just arrived from Panama. They are were transitioning through the Erie Canal in August 2021:

They are currently around 8 months behind on their videos.

Past Cruising

Over these last 3 years, they have sailed in:

➜ Africa

➜ United States

➜ SE Asia

➜ The Caribbean

They are no strangers to crossing oceans, having now done the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Affording It

Jamie worked hard for years as a pilot and saved up enough to purchase his first boat, which he flipped and eventually purchased his dreamboat in the Philippines.

Princess equally worked hard and traveled to foreign countries and entertained guests at hotels with the beautiful sound of her voice.

Princess was already keen to get out of her daily grind so the timing was perfect. Together, they hired a boat builder to construct their catamaran and the rest is history.

Net Worth

Sailing Life on Jupiter has a net worth of $450,000.

Making Loot

Jamie talks more about the journey to becoming a world cruiser and digital nomad here:

They treat their YouTube channel as an online business, but only make around $1,400/month by:

➜ Running ads on their channel occasionally

➜ Getting donations via Patreon and PayPal

➜ Selling their own Life on Jupiter merchandise

Unfortunately, they don’t use affiliate links to Amazon or eBay, referral links to other sailing suppliers nor do they accept sponsorships. They could potentially double their income overnight if they took upon some of these strategies. I’d certainly support them if they did this as I already do by watching many of their episodes.

Collaborations

I haven’t seen them on any other YouTube channels. However, there is another Australian who sails with his Asian wife called Sailing Luckyfish although they haven’t uploaded for a while.

Big Moments

Memorable moments in their YouTube journey include:

➜ Getting stuck on a collision course with oil rigs

➜ Having a big drama on Jupiter through almost having a crash in the marina, and where Jamie suffered disc problem in his back. An ambulance was later called while they were in the Philippines.

➜ Being denied entry into several ports during international border closures

➜ Getting snagged on a power cable

➜ Discovering a sunken drug plane (they dove on it!)

➜ Launching a rocket from their boat

➜ Having their catamaran haulout aborted

➜ Avoiding disaster on more than one occasion

➜ Jamie had to go to the hospital too:

They have as much fun as they have drama. Fortunately, they both work well together on the boat with each taking an equal role.

From my experience (I dated a Filipina and yes, she was beautiful!), most don’t want to go in the sun or sailing, but Princess is clearly keen to get out there and explore. She’s a rare exception 🙂

Future Plans

Where to next? They’re planning on going through the ICW and then the Bahamas. Eventually, they’ll work their way to Australia over the next several years, and I certainly can’t wait to welcome them!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this beautiful couple?

➜ Plan your journey ahead

➜ Be willing to make some changes

➜ Roll with the drama and punches

➜ Be willing to work on your boat

➜ Don’t be afraid to shop around

Most importantly – you don’t need a boat that is made by one of the major boat builders. By choosing your own design, you can find a boat that you can work on yourself so easily.

Conclusion

Sailing Life on Jupiter has a saying:

“I hope that our videos inspire other dreamers to reach out, focus and achieve their dreams.

Hopefully some inspiration to –

“Quit Job Go Sailing”.

Life is not supposed to be about just getting by.

I find it ridiculous to spend your life paying off a mortgage just so that at the end of it you have somewhere to live.

You’ve only got one shot this life, as far as I can tell…. so make it special.

Dream big.

Live “NOW”. Make every moment count…. towards your dreams.”

– Captain Jamie

And I totally agree! Provided you’re fully prepared first.

If you’re planning to quit your job and sail a few years from now, then I have an exciting opportunity…
