Typhoon by Joseph Conrad

What better way to accompany your explorer yacht expedition to the Arctic (or leisurely cruise around the Mediterranean) than the best summer reads telling tales of great seafaring adventures? From stories of accidental adventures to the capers of famous fictional explorers, we’ve rounded up the best sailing novels to pack for your next superyacht vacation.

Typhoon by Joseph Conrad

This novella, first published in 1902 and still in print, is best read while safely tied up alongside or in some snug anchorage – the description of the tropical storm in the title is unnervingly real. Conrad is thought to have ridden out a cyclone aboard the steamer John P Best.
