Joshua Smith

Founder and Editor at Cruising Freedom

This is the definitive guide on Sailing Ruby Rose for 2023.

Over the last 2 and a bit years, I have spent around 75 hours watching and researching everything I could about Sailing Ruby Rose so you don’t have to.

(Yes, I really am *that* obsessed with Nick and Terysa 😃)

If you wanted to know:

➔ How Nick and Terysa afforded their boat

➔ How they make their money today

➔ What boat do they have and its upgrades

➔ 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 Ruby Rose FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name

Ruby Rose (previously) flying a London flag, and Ruby Rose 2 (future).

They were currently leasing a Seawind 1260 in Australia but this ended several months ago.

Crew Members

Nick Fabbri (49) and Terysa Vanderloo (34) who, after dating for almost 10 years, Nick has NOT proposed to Terysa so they aren’t engaged to be married.

Terysa is originally from Adelaide, just like me.

The Boat

Sailing Ruby Rose previously owned a Southerly 38 monohull which they had owned for 7+ years and sailed 20,000 nautical miles. Nick and Terysa ordered a Seawind 1370 in mid 2020, and this catamaran will be the first of the 1370 series off the production line.


Nick and Terysa made many upgrades to their first sail boat:

➔ Cockpit enclosure (Nick made this himself)

➔ Code Zero, Parasailor and Storm Jib.

➔ Custom marine mattresses for the aft cabin

➔ Solar, wind and hydro power upgrades

➔ Coffee Machine (yes, really…!)

➔ Apple TV, Television and Blu-Ray Player


According to Instagram and YouTube, they are in Saigon, Vietnam at the Seawind factory. They are visiting the factory and doing some work on their new boat.

This shows that they’re up to date on their videos.

Past Cruising

Nick and Terysa have sailed in the following regions:

➔ Bermuda

➔ Bahamas

➔ British Virgin Islands (BVI)

➔ Canary Islands

➔ England (Nick’s original home)

➔ France (including the canals)

➔ Morocco

➔ Portugal

➔ Peurto Rico

➔ Spain

➔ US Virgin Islands

➔ Caribbean

➔ United States of America

➔ Australia

Affording It

Nick worked as a dentist with his own practice in England, while Terysa worked as a paramedic in her original hometown of Adelaide, Australia. The couple met more than 10 years ago on a group tour in India and began dating soon afterwards.

Between personal savings and the sale of Nick’s dentistry practice, the couple was able to afford their first boat, the Southerly 38. At the time, it was almost 2x their initial budget but provided them an excellent base in which to do ocean crossings.

Net Worth

Cruising couples on YouTube are often millionaires…

As of 2023, Sailing Ruby Rose has a net worth of $1,800,000 USD.

This is based on the value of their new catamaran ($900k alone), online business and stock portfolio.

Making Loot

In 2023, Sailing Ruby Rose makes their money with:

➔ YouTube advertising revenue

➔ Affiliate links on YouTube videos

➔ Merchandise on their website

➔ Their hundreds of Patreon members

➔ Brand sponsorships (while remaining unbiased)

They aren’t making peanuts here.

Sailing Ruby Rose makes around $12,500 per month on YouTube which is just enough to keep sailing.

They have worked hard to build a strong following and a remarkable reputation through their channel.


Sailing Ruby Rose have collaborated with the following YouTubers:

Gone With The Wynns (5x episodes)

Distant Shores TV

Sailing Uma

Big Moments

➔ The worst moments for Sailing Ruby Rose are the numerous meltdowns between Nick and Terysa

➔ The best moments are boat reviews and unbiased feedback with a viewer scoring system

➔ Their most popular video is ‘How Much Does It Cost To Sail Around The World?’ and I have an excellent guide here.

Future Plans

Sailing Ruby Rose will transform into Sailing Ruby Rose II with a Seawind 1370. They plan on exploring Australia and Asia for the foreseeable future.

Key Takeaways

Nick and Terysa are truly young and free while staying true to their values. Their engaged audience sees the raw vulnerability and honest glimpse of #boatlife for budget-conscious cruisers.

They didn’t wait for the million-dollar catamaran and instead, used the resources which were available to them at the time.

Later, they capitalized on their following and struck a great deal with Seawind. Fun fact: I’m buying a Seawind for my circumnavigation too.

Both Nick and Terysa also remind us that boats at boatshows aren’t a true representation of what a boat can and can’t handle.


I expect Sailing Ruby Rose to continue their sailing travels for at least the next 3 to 5 years. You can bet I’ll be tuned in until the end!
