The purpose of ALVEI is to allow her crew to maintain a low cost, self-sufficient lifestyle on the world's oceans, learning the traditional arts of the sailor and doing some good along the way. To that end, the rig of the ship and style of operation have a simplicity found only in sailing ships from a bygone era.
Doing Good Things in Remote Places
Over the years we have had the privilege of assisting in many kinds of medical, cultural and ecological relief projects throughout the South Pacific. We joined Project MARC (Medical Aid to Remote Communities) from 2006-2011 providing limited treatment to remote villages on the outer islands of Vanuatu.
The Honour Fiji Journey commenced on World Oceans Day, June 8th 2012 in Suva, Fiji with both Fijian and international youth committed to ecology service projects on the outer islands on an eight week voyage in honor of the great cultural legacy of Fiji.
We have also partnered with one of Honour Fiji's sponsors, Global Vision International (GVI), to continue conservation and community development programs in the Fiji Islands.
In 2015 we conducted a cyclone damage survey for the islands of Vanuatu with our previous partners with Project MARC.
On Alvei, you are not a passive observer but actively participating in a rustic, authentic lifestyle
rarely experienced in this modern age.
