SV Havili is creating an expedition of ocean and island exploration!

patrons
$0
per month
For over two decades, Sam dreamed of living on a sailboat and sailing around the world. In 2016, Havili became our home, and for the past two years we've been getting the boat prepped and ready for our voyage. On November 27, 2018, we said goodbye to our slip in Marina del Rey, California and headed south to our first stop in foreign waters: Mexico!

As we explore the world's oceans, coastal communities, and islands, we wanted to find a way to not only share our discoveries with our family and friends, but also to promote conservation of the places and wildlife we were interacting with. We hope to achieve both through our videos! Our YouTube series will include videos about everyday living on a sailboat, traveling via sailing, underwater exploration, and ocean conservation. By becoming a patron and supporting us monthly, it allows us to continue staying afloat and creating content that we hope will entertain, educate, and enlighten!

We are all incredibly grateful for the opportunity to experience the world in this way, and thankful for any amount of support! Thank you!!!

With love,
Nancy, Sam, Catherine, Tucker, & Mango

When was the last time you went to the beach and didn't see a piece of trash half-buried in the sand or floating by in the water? Perhaps you imagine how the debris will most likely outlive you, or end up in a turtle's stomach. Maybe you leave it, or maybe you pick it up. On Havili, we're dedicated to the latter!


Every time you contribute, we'll pick up 5 pieces of trash from the ocean or from the next beach we sail to. (We will anyway, but you're holding us to our word!)


We'll also donate 20% of your contribution to a local organization we've interacted with! Some examples so far include ECOCIMATI (conserves great white sharks in Guadalupe Island; www.ecocimati.org) and an animal shelter in La Paz.


Lastly, as a thank you, we'll include your name at the end of one of our upcoming videos!


All patrons receive:

  • Trash pick-up (& sleeping at night knowing the oceans will have 5 less pieces of trash in it)
  • 20% of your contribution donated to a local organization ($1 out of $5)
  • Credits in an upcoming video
Deckhand
$10 or more per month

We're four 20-somethings and a dog aboard a 49-foot sailboat. How can we afford this? How do we provision to be away from port for weeks at a time? How do we catch enough fish to subsist and what are our favorite preparations? What parts of the boat give us the most problems and how far can we get on duct tape?


Your support will grant you priority access to "Ask Me Anything" sessions with the crew! Depending on where we are in the cellular world, this could be in the form of a Q&A video (patrons will have their questions answered and get early-access one week before they're released to the public) or livestream (patrons get their questions answered first).


All patrons receive:

  • Early-access to Q&A videos & any/all questions answered
  • ALL rewards from previous tier (e.g., $2 out of $10 donated)
First Mate
$25 or more per month

"Hello MTV, and welcome to my crib."


We'll call you up for a one-on-one video chat (scheduled whenever we have access to decent service) and give you a tour of our floating home!


Joining this tier will also give you unlimited access to bonus/exclusive content you request (e.g., budget spreadsheets, provisions list, boat systems walkthroughs). We've researched, prepared, installed, and fixed various parts of our boat for the past two years, and we'll tell you everything we've learned!


Lastly, we'll send you a personal thank you email delivered through our SSB radio while we're out at sea!


All patrons receive:

  • One-on-one video chat hangout & boat tour
  • Unlimited access to bonus/exclusive content
  • Personal thank you email
  • ALL rewards from previous tiers (e.g., $5 out of $25 donated)
Captain
$50 or more per month

There’s nothing better than receiving a hand-written letter in the mail, crinkled at the corners and well-traveled.


To show our undying love and appreciation for your support, we'll send you a postcard from wherever we are in the world, signed and paw-printed by the entire crew!


All patrons receive:

  • Signed postcard from Havili
  • ALL rewards from previous tiers (e.g., $10 out of $50 donated)
Official Crew Member!
$250 or more per month

Raise the mainsail! Unfurl the genoa! Trim the mizzen! Swab the decks!


Welcome aboard! To show our devotion and loyalty to our most generous supporter, you and one friend are invited to join us on Havili for a week for any leg of our voyage, redeemable at any time (as long as we're sailing, which is hopefully forever)!


Once aboard, you can sail, sunbathe, swim, snorkel, SCUBA dive, spearfish, and scavenge deserted island beaches with us to your hearts content! We'll share all our freshly-caught fish and beer with you, and you'll be featured in our videos (if you want!). You and your plus one will have your own room with two beds.


We would love the opportunity to be able to thank you in person, and have you go down in history as an official crew member that helped keep us afloat!


*Minimum 4 month contribution*


All patrons receive:
