Cruising in Seraffyn has sold over 50,000 copies in five editions and three languages. The Pardeys have also added a sixteen page full-color album with 35 new photographs for this silver anniversary edition. This book will inspire new readers and appeal to fans who already enjoy the special world Lin and Larry share with their lively and informative prose.
“Go small, go simple, go now, say the Pardey’s.” This message has inspired three generations of sailors and kept Cruising in Seraffyn consistently near the top of nautical best seller lists for over two decades. This new edition, with its exciting 16 page spread of full-color photos, new forward and two new appendices, will appeal to anyone who has an adventuresome spirit.
“After voyaging tens of thousands of engineless miles under sail, penning more useful marine books than Hiscock and Moitessier combined, and receiving more awards for their pursuits than Tom Hanks has for his, Lin and Larry Pardey are entitled to their well-earned nautical opinions.”
-Herb McCormick, editor Cruising World
“This book should be required reading for young couples who are dying to cruise. With the delightful ebullience of youth, the Pardey’s speak with the authority of those who dreamed and acted.”
-Herb Payson, Sail Magazine
“Lin Pardey can draw a non-sailor into these special subjects and make them as comprehensible and absorbing to a landlubber as they would be to someone about to set out.”
-New York Times
