Everything You Always Wanted To Know
Founder and Editor at Cruising Freedom
This is the definitive guide on Sailing One Life for 2023.
Over the last 2 years, I have spent so many hours watching and researching everything I could about Sailing One Life to learn more about their story.
(Yes, I really am *that* obsessed with Gary and Brooke 😃)
I regularly watch their YouTube channel just like you, so if you wanted to know:
➜ How Sailing One Life afforded their boat
➜ How they make their money today
➜ What boat do they have and its upgrades
➜ How much is Sailing One Life worth
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 One Life FAQs (January 2023)
S/V One Life
Gary MacGyver (age 39)
Brooke MacGyver (age 38)
Sailing One Life has a 1983 Nautical Development Offshore 40, but was launched in 1984.
You can view a boat tour here:
Upgrades include new electronics, solar and B&G Zeus 3.
Most of their cruising has been in the United States, the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
Gary was a mechanic while Brooke had a career in finance. These were their humble beginnings and they knew that they wanted more.
They paid under $100,000 for their yacht which is a beautiful design,1 of only 14 in the world too.
Sailing One Life has a net worth of $285,000.
So how do they sustain themselves?
➜ They run their own Patreon account
➜ There are YouTube ads on their videos
➜ You’ll find affiliate links to Epic Water Filters
➜ There is also One Life Merchandise
With this in mind, Sailing One Life are making around $4,200/month by creating YouTube videos. This is just enough to keep them going full-time.
Apart from friends and family, I haven’t seen them with any other YouTubers.
They have experienced very few incidents or problems, nor have they created any click-bait drama.
They are planning on taking on the South Pacific in the future, and may even sail as far as Australia.
What can we learn from this wonderful sailing couple?
➜ Be willing to do what others won’t
➜ It’s OK to end your job/career now
➜ Cruising is relatively affordable
➜ Plan ahead for your future freedom
Of course, for the guys, find a great Mer-mate like Brooke. 🙂
I really love supporting the smaller cruising channels on YouTube and S/V One Life is no exception!
They are funny, smart and super down to earth. While they have only been sailing for just over a year, they have grown so much as sailors…and I certainly can’t wait to see where this journey leads them!
