This is the definitive guide on The Sailing Brothers for 2022.

Over the last several years, I have spent many hours watching and researching everything I could about The Sailing Brothers to learn more about their story.

(Yes, I really am *that* obsessed with The Sailing Brothers 😃)

➜ How The Sailing Brothers afforded their boat

➜ How they make their money today

➜ What boat do they have and its upgrades

➜ If they have found women while sailing

➜ 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… 🙂

The Sailing Brothers FAQs (June 2022)

Boat Name

S/V Atlas

Crew Members

Luke Martin (age 36)

Adam Martin (age 37)

They don’t have girlfriends and haven’t really dated since living on board full-time.

The Boat

The Sailing Brothers own a 1979 Rival 34 sailing yacht:


They have upgraded their yacht with basic electronics as they’re on a tight budget. They don’t even have a fridge or freezer, and their engine is 42 years old and still going strong.


They recently reached North Carolina after leaving the British Virgin Islands. This was an incredible 1258nm passage that took multiple days.

Past Cruising

They have sailed around the United Kingdom then headed for warmer waters.

Affording It

Like many YouTubers, The Sailing Brothers simply worked hard for their dream, although their boat only cost $35,000.

Much of the restoration projects and boat work was done by themselves (more than 400 hours!), therefore keeping the costs down.

Net Worth

The Sailing Brothers has a net wroth of $175,000.

Making Loot

They make $2,400/month on YouTube from:

➜ Their loyal Patreon subscribers

➜ Allowing YouTube to put ads on their channel

This is only just enough to sustain themselves, but they do get odd jobs in ports. They could monetized their channel so much better.


They are a little more introverted than other cruising channels on Youtube, and haven’t done any collabs at this time.

Big Moments

Things haven’t been easy and they have experienced:

➜ Coming across a sailor in distress

➜ Experiencing multiple problems with their engine

➜ Almost getting a $10,000 fine in the BVI’s

Fortunately, they haven’t created any drama or click-baitey content.

Future Plans

Through 2022, they plan to explore the United States and may later head for the South Pacific.

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from these friendly gentlemen?

➜ Make your dream happen today

➜ Learn to do your own boat work

➜ Work towards your own freedom

➜ You don’t need an expensive boat

And of course, open your mind to opportunities!


I’ve really liked watching these guys. They’re a smaller channel and don’t have the gloss of other channels, or the bikinis for that matter.

It’s as though they’ve created their channel for people who actually want to go sailing, rather than the dreamers.

Certainly, they’re more relatable than 95% of channels out there, and they command a huge amount of respect from me! I’ll be supporting them long into the future.
