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 The Far Side FAQs (January 2023)

Boat Name

I’m not sure what their boat name is.

Crew Members

Sascha Meyers (age 26)

Nathalie Meyers (age 27)

Both girls do YouTube full-time and are influencers. Both are single too the last time I checked.

They also have their 2 dogs on board.

The Boat

Sailing The Far Side has a custom-built 1987 Tradewinds 50′ yacht. It was originally their dad’s boat.


Upgrades to their yacht include:

➜ Mantus marine anchor (they sent it for free)

➜ They use an iPad with Navionics as their main navigation in the cockpit

➜ An air compressor to fill up their dive tanks

➜ B&G Zeus 3 Chartplotter and AIS

➜ Microwave

The sisters are continuing to upgrade the boat and keep it in tip-top condition.


They have been missing from YouTube for several months, but their last-known location was Fort Lauderdale and Key West, Florida:

Why did they stop producing videos? Did they sell the boat? Get boyfriends?

I have checked Nathalie and Sasha’s Instagrams which were only just updated. They’re still active! Just not uploading more videos at this time.

Update: This is their most recent video…

Past Cruising

The girls have mostly explored the United States and the Bahamas. They are planning for South America in the new year.

Affording It

Are the girls rich? Not really, but their dad bought the boat, not them. They’re influencers and make their income through sponsorships.

Net Worth

As of 2023, Sailing The Far Side has a net worth of $570,000.

Making Loot

They view their YouTube channel as a business that generates approximately $8,200/month via:

➜ Selling their official merchandise (t-shirts and calendars)

➜ Using Amazon affiliate links to sailing products

➜ Running advertising on their YouTube channel

➜ Gaining donations via PayPal, Venmo and Patreon

They are very creative with their content and it’s certainly paid off. Their audience (mostly older men) really appreciate the content and laidback vibes that these beautiful women bring to their channel.


I haven’t seen them on any other YouTube channels so far. Have you? If yes – please let me know so I can update this… 🙂

Big Moments

Moments in their journey include

➜ Almost getting hit by lightning

➜ Getting seasick more than once

➜ Having a few shark encounters

➜ Doing an engine oil change by themselves

➜ They also crashed their boat once

They’re a seriously fun channel and they haven’t crossed oceans, but have sailed to some beautiful spots.

Future Plans

Where to next? They haven’t given any concrete updates to what direction their channel is going. If you do find out, again, please let me know!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from these beautiful souls?

➜ Make the most of every single day

➜ Don’t worry about expensive boats

➜ Women can definitely sail by themselves

➜ Work as a team to make the dream happen

And of course, have a ton of fun!


These women have inspired men and women equally to see the world with wind in their sails.

I’m so glad they’ve shared their travels with us on YouTube and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
