Welcome to Alive Yachting


ALIVE hopes that you and your family and friends are well, safe and happy.

ALIVE is a 66 foot canting keel Reichel Pugh racing yacht. She is currently racing out of Brisbane and registered with the Derwent Sailing Squadron, Tasmania.

ALIVE was purchased at the beginning of 2014 by Tasmanian businessman and entrepreneur Phillip Turner.

ALIVE is skippered by fellow Tasmanian Duncan Hine running a generally non-professional crew of Brisbane and Tasmanian sailors.

At 66 foot ALIVE fits into the ‘mini-maxi’ size category.

However, her narrow and light hull combined with powerful new Southern Spars rig makes her a technically advanced and challenging boat.

We are constantly building a crew with the skills and dedication required to sail this boat safely and competently.

ALIVE has won “1st in Line Honours” in the 2020 Launceston to Hobart Yacht Race, the 2021 King Of The Derwent Yacht Race & the 2021 Bruny Island Race.
