FOUR GUYS, A DOG, AND A BOAT…
... and 26,000 miles of high seas between Hong Kong and Miami.

THE YEAR WAS 1960. William Holden was the latest cinema heartthrob and his movie “The World of Suzie Wong” was all the rage. It was also the year four young men hatched a plan to sail halfway around the world. Never mind that they weren’t sailors or that one of them couldn’t swim. These four young men jumped at the chance to prove something to the world and to themselves.

Armed with not much more than a forty-one-foot Sparkman & Stephens wooden sailboat, a Chinese Chow puppy, and all the gumption needed to survive dysentery, monsoons, and equipment failures, Steve, Walter, George, and Paul christened their newly-built vessel the Suzy Wong and set sail for the adventure of a lifetime. “Voyage of the Suzy Wong” is the true story of four young men who relied on the kindness of strangers, their own resourcefulness, and just plain luck to survive a world-embracing journey and live their dream.
