We’re Selling Our Boat

We’re dropping some big news today.  One chapter is ending and another is soon to begin.  Our journey is ever-evolving, hopefully never-ending, and the mission remains the same, to Cultivate Curiosity.  All the details are in the video so I won’t wax on about it.

As for what’s next…well, Curiosity is officially on the market but we still have a few more adventures planned before we say goodbye.  As excited as we are to begin the next leg of our journey, saying goodbye to this one is going to be hard.

 

Curiosity For Sale

 

🙏 THANK YOU!

Ups, downs, and all around, we share it all. If you like what you see, there are lots of ways you can show your support.

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    Your curiosity has been fulfilled and is overflowing! This may be the first catamaran that has gained value after its time, and there is no more a deserving couple. Y’all have taken care of that boat probably better than any owner of a boat that updates, retrofits, installs, replaces, fixes, loves, hates, loves again, etc etc…

    It’s is a gem unto its own.

    I cannot wait to learn of the new vessel and it’s moniker! Perhaps a naming contest?

    I found you through Bumfuzzle. I’d love to follow your adventure since the first post as I did with them, but there doesn’t seem to be a starting point. Can you send the link to the very beginning?

      The easiest way to watch in order is to head over to the GWTW YouTube page for their playlists (https://www.youtube.com/c/gonewiththewynns/playlists ). Scroll down until you find a playlist called “Sailing Around The World || All Sailing Vids From The Beginning!” and start there. Don’t forget to come back to the corresponding blog post whenever you want links to products, or more info on e-bikes, etc. The blog is always the go-to for the deep dive into info. Have fun with the binge!

    whale whale whale…I was shocked to hear ” We are selling our boat” Nooooooooooo! I have lived vicariously through you both for years now. I bought my first Class A and traveled half the country with still more to see. Was surprised when you Traded wheels for keels, and then watched you sail around the world. Much impressed with your choice to live your best life early and grab the adventure. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to seeing this new boat

    Congratulations!!!!! Less engine maintenance Less Fuel + Less costs and a cleaner and brighter future. Will 2.0 have the ability to take passengers on certain passages? With zero sailing experience but a thirst to learn ,you could start a learn while we earn program! C Ya PS I guess that put a tour on OZ on hold for a good while.

    I have a hunch that your next boat is made in Singapore. I’ve been thinking a lot about the future, and the future of boating and it seems that transatlantic voyages are now within the realm of electric + solar now. I’m guessing that a very savvy firm reached out to you and your new boat is not far off, nor far away…

    And if I’m right, I’m very, very proud of you – because I think solar powered boats must be a huge part of the planet’s future.

    In Ontario Canada, a sailor found a de-masted catamaran for $2000, fitted it with a roof full of solar panels and circumnavigated the province of Ontario (bigger than Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma put together) using the various canal systems. I believe he was able to maintain an average of 4 kn and the whole project compiled for an astounding small amount of money. Think 50k.

    Imagine being able to house people on boats that produce their own clean water and provide enough energy for all our domestic needs with built-in vegetable gardens! No land needed!

    I promise to continue to stay tuned to you two savvy, forward looking adventurers!

    And if I’m correct, I call naming rights and I propose the new vessel’s name should be… Future Usher. Just kidding, how about Solar Curiosity?
    Sail on from beyond!

  • Roger Cox

    I am going to hazard a guess. There are other options. But the HH catamarans on the high end do have everything Nikki mentioned so very quickly that you have to focus to catch all she said. I focused. Then I thought, are there any production sailboats that meet all Nikki’s dream list? YES! HH77 and HH88 met all those criteria. However, swallow hard on the price tag. I don’t really know exact numbers but think around $6 million. And is there even one of these that is NOT built to order? No. All are built to order. How long is lead time. Again not exact, but around 2 years. Maybe a bit less, 1 year? That would be minimum to build a custom cat of this size and capability. Are you going to delete my spoiler comment?

    Curiosity: Einstein was famous for his views on many things. The thing he became more famous among hard core theoretical physicists like myself is his views on intelligence. There are many high IQ people who can learn the math needed to do theoretical physics. Well that is, many take physics and the math needed that never make it into the realm of making contributions in theoretical physics. I have and so did Einstein. His view and mine is that curiosity is far more important than a high IQ. There are many high IQ people who never go into physics or even science. Just smart folks. I am glad we have them. But the two of you have this premier gift of the human mind – curious souls. Good work. Do not quit.

    What a surprise to read you are selling Curiosity. But, after thinking about it, it fits in with your past history. Truthfully, I think it was time for an upgrade or positive change for you. I think we are all thankful, grateful, eager and excited for what we have been given here and the new Curiosity II.
    Wow. How exciting for you both. You both have always kept me wondering what is out there and available to make my life here on this planet more awesome and enjoyable. You both have always done that for me, and Curiosity has always been up to the task at hand. Because of that I am way overdue for a life change. 😎
    I have not missed one of your Sunday videos since before you came to Coachella in your RV. Now, it is the weekend of Coachella again after dodging the pandemic. I started watching The Wynns when you drove your RV to the Bahamas, and I was hooked from that time. A testament to your awesome, unforgettable, killer videos. 👍. Not much more to say. I don’t know you both face to face, but I cannot help to say I love you. Thank you for adding to my life and I am looking forward to next Sunday. Best of everything.

  • Michel

    We enjoyed the ride with you form almost 4 years ago. We got hooked on your life style and the many adventures good and not so good. The challenges you concurred, the people you helped, the friends you made and the lessons learned. We will stay with you as you both move on to a new and what must be an environment friendly and self sufficient new home on the water to continue to explore and learn, while all along reminding us of what the remote corners of the Oceans are going through, as the scientists are predicting much of it will be under water and gone for ever.

    Happy Easter!
    Ok so I follow you all the OKelly’s (strong Oregon Connections—though we love Gulf Shores, AL) and The Sailing Family (HH President now–no new videos and never with rhythm as they had their hands full with 3 kids and more Ducket$) . All 3 awesome in their own ways…All have put up boats for sale in the past year. You and the Okelly’s in the Past 4 weeks. I know the Okelly’s follow you all—I am thinking you follow them as well?

    Some Random interesting thoughts all provoke by you all: (Note Yall = You All )

    The Sailing Fam by far was the luckiest –In the Corona Times, yet they were by far the hardest on yall. While the Sailing Fam found Fiji magic all to themselves for over a year–“Sail Setting” around Fiji with an identical Outremer with another Fam that had 3 kids (can you make this up) –with literally Fiji all to themselves—unbelievable and a Government that worked with common sense..kudo’s Fiji.

    You all by far had the most struggles during the pandemic yet as a couple you got thru it..I know I do not see the really bad days…but I appreciate “yalls” awesome “stay” and rhythmic inspiring videos.

    Originally all I wanted was a Leopard 46 then I called Leopard and inquired about the newer 45–but you must buy the generator ….. no need for a Generator/Brick Pile….Wrong direction for Leopard..Which lends itself to power hungry “stuff”..I like the all electric “game”….

    After all you all taught me —–I watched the Sailing Fam beginning to end. I realized, I really am an imaginary “Rainy Day Sailer” and 10 knots of wind going 10 knots just gets my heart rate and imagination going– I see the Dolphins on my port in crystal clear waters the sound of water wisping……

    I was sold on the Outremor and HH after seeing the sailing fam. 10 knots in 10 knots of wind looks like my kind of sailing….perfect days with 10 knot winds….We all pick up all YouTube sailors insatiable Vibes in 10-15 knots and sunny…..just happy for you all….

    I am mid fifty’s Engineer (lived internationally) my daughter has special needs so we enjoy yalls youth and energy –I also really appreciate the Okelly’s older more conservative sailing life style. We loved seeing 10 kinds playing in Fiji ok 4 adults and 6 kids (Sailing Fam)…”Willson” never had it so good….

    No one gives better Equpment recommendations and —what an awesome Website….so appreciated. I gotta say its time for an Apple M1 though—I’ve been an Intel/Android guy forever (thought I would never change) but hey its all about the energy game and the Apple M1 Silicone has obliterated the field. CPU calcs per dollar and CPU cycles per Watt hour…..not even close….I prefer to stay with the simple/cheaper M1’s. Vid performance is marginally better when doubling the money….The M1 is what separates you from the field. Souped up doubled M1s (Ultras) only give marginal performance gains…..is 30 seconds worth double the price? and you only need 32 Gigs of ram…per Youtube performance testers…..

    Yup the perfect all electric is an RV for a person that is not in a hurry….Charge n go….Charge n Go…..Everyone wins….

    My next house will be on the Grid but “Off the Grid” —-Inspired by you all

    I love to live Vicariously thru yall—thanks for the memories!!!

    My daughter and I look forward to the ADVENTURES.

    Thank You for all the inspirations and innovations….

    I can’t wait to see what instore……!!!

Best wishes as always going forward with your new adventures and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!

    For reasons we can’t help, my wife and I can’t afford to join patreon, so when will we get notified via emails about your new trek ?
    We took a cruise into Alaska years ago and LOVED it, so that’s why we’ve followed your drive, through Alaska. Then,…since we are saltwater reef & fish hobbyists (which we breed fish and corals) that you guys go on a ocean trek…cool ! What you two saw has been absolutely gorgeous, from mountains to the coral reefs. So, sad to hear you’re selling out, but we’re anxious to hear what your next trek is.

    So, when will we hear what your next adventure is via email’s ?

    Bless you guys and thank you for sharing your travel in your life’s.

    When I woke up this morning the first thing I saw on my phone was “we’re sailing our boat”. I never jumped out of bed so fast lol. I’m like noooooo. When you both said you’re working on 2.0 I was relieved. It was you who inspired me to want to learn how to sail and hopefully one day buy a boat. I will miss your videos every Sunday but very happy for you guys.

    Oh you guys! I have the same feeling as I did when you left wheels for keels! I am so excited for you, though sad for Curiosity to lose the people who love her so much. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you are taking a more sustainable route! I know what we get to enjoy-Sunday treat for me- will continue to be wonderful and you’ll continue with your adventures, opening your eyes and ours to the wonderful diversity of this world. I have to tell you that a few months ago I was showing one of your videos to one of my brothers in FL and he said “That’s just what our childhood (on St Croix) was like.” It’s true. I relive so many memories of childhood each time I watch and, the not so good part, I find myself wishing I was younger. My dad had a dream of setting sail with his wife and 5 kids (destination The Seychelles) but it never came to fruition so this is the next best thing. I can’t tell you how much I admire all that you do, the love and enthusiasm you bring and the excellence of your videography is just the icing on the cake. Fair winds and following seas into your next phase and all good things in relation to your next purchase.
