The future of RAN Sailing?!

I was sad to see this video posted on YouTube last night.


Not unexpected, but sad all the same.

Why sad?
As I understand it, they are just upgrading to a bigger boat?

Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!

I think they're just upgrading. That's a great boat - I wonder what it'll go for. And you can see the work they did, so you know what you're getting.

Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!

I looked at their website, just for fun, and if I read it correctly they're asking $79k for Ran.

Glad to read that. It means that they will be making videos aboard RAN for some time to come!

Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!

I don't know much about boat pricing, but to my unprofessional view that looks like a great deal. Seems like a well-equipped boat for $80k.

RAN for sale

Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!

They prob want the stork to deliver baby ran in sweden.
Then give a year..ish.
Then a boat with room for help/babysitters.
Wouldnt be surpris3d if they went thru canal again...with new boat.
A caveat would be her ridding seasickness after the stork

Re: the price...

In some European countries it's typical to say $XX or highest offer, meaning that's the absolute lowest they'd accept. They don't say how long they'll keep the bidding open, or what number they're hopeful for. I wonder what they'll end up getting for her.

Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!

The vid says they'll be buying a bigger boat, with the baby coming. We'll see. I like watching their adventures. Maybe just a tad too much shore scenes. I prefered to see him rebuild his engine, sail the PNW, etc.

Seems many of the young sailing channels are having or have had babies. LaVagabond, Delos and Ran. There is another Brit/Italian couple, whose channel I'm forgetting, that already has a toddler.

None of the first three seem to have jobs, other than making youtube videos. The unrecalled last, seems mostly coastal and marina liveaboard and give me the impression have day jobs. It will be interesting to see how long the Patreon sponsor bubble lasts, or how long they can maintain interest, before the next fancy comes along. I'm a Delos fan, but not so much a LaVag fan. Delos has recently been more like a scuba channel, with their Drenched crew aboard, and I bore of endless minutes of coral video. Delos historically had an edge up, however, LaVag's subscriptions have exploded since their baby arrived. They are a sailing channel with over a million subscribers now. Seems more like child actor exploitation to me.

I concur. Brian and Kazza of S/V Delos are spending the summer on land with the baby. His brother is supposed to sail Delos to Europe which I suspect will be the base of operations for awhile. Though it will be interesting to see how the dynamics change on board with the baby.

The Vagabond couple are also on land temporarily and appreciating all the conveniences they missed while on board. So maybe their days are numbered but, they have to also keep paying for their boat so might be a little stuck in their ways. Expect more Riley spear fishing videos.

The Brit/Italian couple are Sailing Britaly. Though their videos are becoming more sporadic these days. Got to be tough without full time for editing.

It will be interesting to see if RAN returns after spending time on land with the baby. They did some nice videos.
