Navigating the Waters of Liveaboard Life: A Journey with SV Blue Moon

Sailing and living on a sailboat offer an alluring adventure and might sound like a romantic adventure straight out of a novel, but this lifestyle has its distinct advantages and challenges to navigate. Jonas and Gillian, the passionate duo behind SV Blue Moon, have turned their dream of life as liveaboards into a captivating reality. Their life as liveaboards, the beauty of sailing, and their commitment to alternative living are at the heart of their inspiring adventure.

Life Aboard SV Blue Moon

SV Blue Moon, a 1978 Catalina 30, is the vessel that carries their dreams on the open sea. Powered by a Universal M25 Diesel engine, this sailboat became their home in the spring of 2020. Countless hours of labor were invested in transforming it into a comfortable live-aboard space. Now, it’s a cozy sanctuary for Jonas and Gillian, and they’re absolutely loving it.

Starting in the fall of 2020, this intrepid couple has been living aboard SV Blue Moon in the picturesque setting of Victoria, BC. Their ability to work, study, and embrace the beauty of boat life is a testament to their adaptability. Despite being relatively new to this lifestyle, Jonas and Gillian already overcome its unique challenges. From optimizing the use of their small living space to finding ways to enjoy it to the fullest, they’re eager to share their insights.

Sharing Life’s Adventures Through Video

Jonas and Gillian are not just living their dream but also sharing it with the world through their YouTube channel. Their videos capture the essence of life on a 30ft sailboat, detailing their travel adventures and experiences in alternative living. They have big aspirations for their channel, aiming to produce high-quality, meaningful vlogs that reflect their genuine lives. Collaborations and community projects are on the horizon, and one day, they hope to establish their own homestead where autonomy, resilience, and sustainability are at the core.

As they set their sights on a full-time career in content creation, Jonas and Gillian currently juggle their roles as full-time students and employees. Gillian is nearing the completion of her undergraduate degree in Biology and Environmental Studies, while Jonas maintains a full-time position with the BC Wildfire Service.

Supporting the Dream

To lessen their dependence on ad-based support, Jonas and Gillian established a Patreon page, fostering direct community support. Their goal is to create more time for video production by reducing traditional job commitments. Patrons enjoy ad-free videos, a welcome escape from YouTube and Google Ads.

By supporting Jonas and Gillian, you’re enabling them to pursue their dreams, leading healthy, fulfilling lives aligned with their values. Your support is invaluable.

As you follow their adventures on YouTube and connect with them on the Blue Moon Life Facebook page, you become a part of their journey. Join Jonas and Gillian as they navigate the open sea, sharing the beauty, challenges, and lessons of living aboard SV Blue Moon.
