Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

Does anyone watch "Sailing Soon"

A young family in the UK who bought the Commnche 32 that I was considering. I love the commanche as a boat but watching their videos I'm glad I didn't buy it. Otherwise I'd have ended up in cold damp uk rather than touring the med all this summer.

Anyone might be interesting for some people who interested in older boats. Their views jumped form practically nothing to 20,000 a video over a short period. They claim they earn a full-time income from just 1.8k subscribers which is good for them.

Actually, Sailing Soon posted recently about the wife's health condition...they hope to get that resolved and back to work on the boat.

You aren't paying for the water. You are paying for other people to produce a bottle that is cheap enough to be disposable and put the water in it because you want the convenience.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

I'd like to do a little shameless self promotion if that is ok

My wife and I have been dreaming of sailing and documenting our adventures on video ever since we first saw Distant Shores 10 years ago. We've finally gotten our lives in order to be able to do it and just posted our second video last night.

We took a road trip down to Guaymas, MX to look at a Catamaran that was a little worse for wear.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

There was some analysis I saw on Youtube that was quite good. Basically laVagabonde and SVDelos are making profit. There are about 10 more who are making ok money. Then there is the rest who make beer money. Moreover, laVaga and Delos have basically full time jobs producing their channels.

But that is pretty much the situation for any entertainment field: musicians, writers, sports people, actors etc. A few people are are lucky enough to have the talent and to know the right people or be in the right place at the right time and become stars. A few people make a living out of it. And then there are the hoards who do it for fun/recreation.

Essentially, if you do have a Youtube channel, you are 99% likely doing it for fun and as charity to your viewers.

It is a dream of mine to build a Diesel Duck. Videos like yours are a real inspiration and help to ground myself in the reality of what is involved.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

La Vagabond guy worked in the mines in WA to save up for his boat. they talk about the money challenge a bit on the vids.
Delos always have a bunch of crew- maybe some of them pay to sail....
My family of four sold our house to buy boat and now get by on a couple of small internet based businesses that make us about $800 AUD a week. We could survive on less but we go into to marinas a fair bit and eat out and whatnot. Like many liveaboards, my husband can build and fix most things, but we take work breaks so he can go back to work when we need to pay for something big. You meet folks doing it on all sorts of income ranges and in all sorts of situations from those who don't need much, live off fish, refrain from motoring and never go into marinas, to those doing it while still trying to pay land-lubber bills like insurance, rates, mortgages on their houses and cars. Basically it seems where there is a will there is a way despite financial circumstances

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

if it wasn't for the soft porn presented in most of these videos, would there be Patreon money? I don't think so.

Re: Youtube liveaboard stars?

I've not seen anything like soft porn in any youtube sailing videos. I must be watching the wrong ones.

It's interesting that despite the success of some, there are still just a tiny drop in the ocean compared to say tech videos where even an average one (for a crap product) will get four to five times as many views.

I know in the UK the Equestrian and Motorcycle industries are worth around £4-5bn a year each. The sailing industry (leisure and small commercial) is worth around £3bn, so it's lagging a little despite the recent growth.

So you were looking at two cats, but it seems like you now have a Tartan 37? Just curious why the change? BTW, I'm a mono hull guy too, cause we all know how superior they are...
