Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail! was released in 1996 and is the seventh installment in the Leisure Suit Larry series of adventure games. The game was developed and published by Sierra On-Line and is the first Larry game since the third to pick up immediately where its predecessor left off.


The game begins with Larry Laffer being dumped by Shamara, the woman who represented the ultimate goal of Larry 6. Heartbroken, Larry decides to take a cruise to forget his troubles. However, his vacation plans are quickly sidetracked when he meets a beautiful woman named Patti. Patti is traveling with her father, a wealthy businessman, and she is immediately smitten with Larry.

Larry quickly learns that Patti is not the only woman on the cruise who is interested in him. In fact, the entire ship is filled with beautiful women, including parodies of famous celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Demi Moore, Victoria Principal, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Larry soon finds himself caught in a web of intrigue and romance. He must use all of his wits and charm to win the hearts of the women on the ship, while also avoiding the advances of the ship’s security guard, who is determined to keep Larry away from Patti.


Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail! is a point-and-click adventure game. The player controls Larry as he explores the cruise ship and interacts with the other characters. The game features a variety of puzzles that must be solved in order to progress.

The game’s puzzles are generally not too difficult, but they can be frustrating at times. For example, one puzzle requires Larry to find a way to get past a security guard. The solution to the puzzle is to find a way to distract the guard, but it is not immediately obvious how to do this.
