This is the definitive guide on Sailing Pickle Family for 2023.

Over the last 2 years, I have spent so many beautiful hours watching and researching everything I could about Sailing Pickle Family to learn more about their story.

As a homeschooling dad, I really resonated with their lifestyle. Not only that, but I really wanted to discover how they afforded to go sailing on their catamaran 😃

➜ How Sailing Pickle Family afforded their boat

➜ How they make their money today

➜ What boat do they have and its upgrades

➜ What are their real names

➜ How you can start crossing oceans

Then you’ve definitely come to the right place.

Before we start, a quick introduction from me…

But more on that later… 🙂

Sailing Pickle Family FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

S/V Pickle

Crew Members



Bryony, Beau and Bear are their children, while Boza is their dog who sadly passed away early last year.

Their children are ‘world schooled’ in that they do homeschooling from wherever they live and are able to experience lessons first-hand.

The Boat

Sailing Pickle Family owns a 1982 Sonstige Prout 35 for which they paid roughly 58.500 € or approximately $60,000 USD.

You can find out more about the catamaran here.


There has been a ton of work that they have needed to do.

This has included new electronics, tender and more.


They are in Venice and this is also reflected on their YouTube account as per Episode 124.

They have actually been here for about 6 months now.

Clearly, they are up to date on their videos.

Past Cruising

They have sailed around the Mediterranean.

Affording It

Chris and Nicky had saved hard for multiple years and weren’t simply lucky, although the universe was probably on their side. 🙂

They sold most of their possessions and went cruising full-time a few years ago.

Net Worth

Today in 2023, Sailing Pickle Family has a net worth of $450,000.

Making Loot

They make around $1,700/month on YouTube, but how exactly?

➜ They run a Patreon account

➜ They allow YouTube to put ads on their channel

Nicky also provides Reiki sessions and coaching.

The UK government does provide them with a small income stream while they do have some investments too. Chris works remotely at times.


As they are a smaller channel, I haven’t seen them collaborate with any other YouTubers at this time. If you have seen them on other channels then please let me know!

Big Moments

The Pickle family are quite conservative sailors but have experienced some rough storms and a suspected pirate encounter.

Future Plans

Where to next? After leaving the Mediterranean, we can expect to see them in the United States or the Caribbean in the near future.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn?

➜ You don’t need an expensive boat

➜ World schooling totally is awesome

➜ Be willing to do your own boat work

➜ Find someone who’ll share your values

And of course, work through the challenges!


I have enjoyed watching so much from these smaller creators. We have a ton in common and I’m sure they’ll evolve with more content and more subscribers!
