The Ultimate Guide to Sailing Yacht Florence
Here's Everything You Wanted To Know
This is the definitive guide on S/V Florence for 2023.
Over the last few years, I have spent 26 hours watching and researching everything I could about Matt and Amy as I really enjoy their channel.
(I got really obsessed with them since their Whitsundays adventure, ’cause that’s my own backyard! )
If you wanted to know:
➔ How Sailing Yacht Florence’s crew afforded their boat
➔ How they make their money today
➔ What boat 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 Yacht Florence FAQs (January 2023)
Matt Bruce Humpreys (age 35)
Amy Cartwright (age 34)
Florence is a 1985 37-foot Oyster Heritage blue ocean sailing yacht with 3 cabins and 1 head. It’s gross tonnage is 7 tonnes.
Matt and Amy have upgraded their yacht with:
➔ A brand new sailing dinghy without an outboard
➔ New B&G electronics including GPS and autopilot
➔ New spinnaker and spinnaker pole
Sailing Yacht Florence are in French Guiana and Suriname.
They have already finished their 6-year circumnavigation but have no plans to stop.
Amy and Matt are pursuing a global navigation from England to England with one lap around the world.
So far they have cruised in:
➔ The Caribbean
➔ The United States
➔ French Polynesia
➔ New Zealand
➔ South Africa
Amy and Matt paid $75,000 for their yacht.
They bought this through diligent savings as they both have full-time jobs prior to sailing.
YouTubers are doing well for themselves.
As of 2023, Sailing Yacht Florence has a net worth of $725,000 USD. This is based on the value of their yacht, online business and small stock portfolio.
Evidently, you don’t need be a millionaire to sail around the world or even just enjoy the cruising lifestyle full-time.
Today in 2023, they make their money with:
➔ Working as digital nomads (real jobs)
➔ Donations from their Patreon subscribers
➔ YouTube advertising revenue
It only costs $3,500 per month for their sailing/cruising lifestyle.
Sailing Yacht Florence haven’t collaborated with any other YouTube cruisers as of 2023.
Some of the biggest highlights in their travels are:
➔ Being boarded at night on a remote island
➔ Sailing across the Indian and Pacific oceans
➔ Going through the Panama Canal (assisted)
Amy and Matt envision sailing the western side of Africa after Seychelles and South Africa.
What can we learn from Sailing Yacht Florence?
➔ Blue ocean cruisers aren’t million-dollar yachts
➔ You don’t need to wait until age 65 to go cruising
➔ Keep your budget as low as reasonably possible
➔ Success on YouTube doesn’t require a bikini
➔ Stay humble and avoid the click-bait drama
I really enjoy Sailing Yacht Florence’s simple yet encouraging content having watched them on YouTube for too many hours.
After all, they sailed in my backyard (South-East Queensland) and onwards up the Great Barrier Reef and into South-East Asia.
They remind us to use the resources we have available to us and not let our 30’s go to waste.
