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 a 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.

ALIVE has come 2nd for LINE HONOURS in the Brisbane to Gladstone Race 2022, and 1st place in ORCi and 2nd in IRC.

The next race ALIVE will be in is the Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race on Friday 5 August 2022. The details are here… www.rqys.com.au/B2H.
