Welcome to Alive Yachting


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.

Purchased at the beginning of 2014 by Tasmanian businessman, Phillip Turner, Alive and our fresh crew plan to sail the northern circuit as well as the Melbourne to Vanuatu and finish off with the 2014 Sydney Hobart. Alive is skippered by fellow Tasmanian, Duncan Hine, running a mostly 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. The 2014 sailing season will be spent building a crew with the skills and dedication required to sail this boat safely and competently.

2014 will be a busy year for our new team. We have 8 races packed into 9 months, starting with the Southport Regatta in March and Culminating with the Sydney to Hobart at the end of the year.
