Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Far and away best general chandlery for sailing boats.  Stocks engines, mounts, some shafts, couplings, engine instruments, exhaust parts, hoses, lighting, electric parts, line, plumbing parts.  Most staff speak English.  Be aware the  free French Polynesia Guide has the shop in the correct street but it is approx. 500 meters further east on Chef Vairaatoa. Owner Is somewhat reticent about placing special orders which may be due to his not being able to compete with duty-free prices. ( Yacht guide to FP map of location is off 500 meters)

Best visible stock Ocean 2000 but Sopoc is worth checking.
