➜ How they make their money via creating content

➜ What boat do they have today and its upgrades

➜ How old they are and their net worth

➜ A unique way to achieve your freedom

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 Magic Carpet FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Magic Carpet II

Crew Members

Aladino who is Swiss/Italian

Maya who is Canadian

The Boat

Their boat – Magic Carpet II – is a 1982 Cape George 36.


They are currently going through an extensive refit process.


Their boat renovation project was done in Port Townsend, WA, United States.

With their boat finished, they are now sailing in Sweden:

They’ll work their way around the world, slowly but surely!

Past Cruising

Before embarking on this ambitious restoration project, they had sailed Magic Carpet 1 throughout the Mediterranean.

Affording It

Both kept very basic budgets and did simple things to save most of their expenses. They aren’t rich but did work normal jobs to save up enough money to sail permanently.

Net Worth

As of 2023, Sailing Magic Carpet has a net worth of $195,000.

Making Loot

Sailing Magic Carpet makes $4,700/month on their channel through:

➜ Referral links to Total Boat Products

➜ Links to other gear they use and wear

➜ Subscriptions to their Patreon account

➜ Allowing YouTube to put ads on their channel

They are constantly evolving and will have enough to continue sailing once the refit is complete.


They have been featured on The Duracell Project most notably.

Big Moments

Their boggest moments include smashing their hull when beaching their boat.

Future Plans

Where to next? They’re planning on a circumnavigation once their boat has been built. While Aladino is a qualified boat builder, he’d rather be out there with his mermaid!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from this knowledgeable couple on YouTube?

➜ Always chase your dreams, no matter the risk

➜ Be willing to put in the hard work today for success

➜ It takes time for good things to come to fruition

➜ Be patient yet persistent to achieve your freedom

And of course, find a partner who supports your dreams!


I have thoroughly enjoyed their boat building process, and certainly can’t wait until they launched their new boat for good!
