For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

Carpentry, Fiberglass & Spraying

8-21 SV Airborne We have had Christian do a couple of jobs for us in the last four months. The first was to cut a new nav panel with all the holes for radios, and MFD pre-cut. He knew we were going to do a carbon wrap so he finished it so there were no surface imperfections that would show through the wrap. The workmanship was perfect and was on time. The second was a set of teak bow pulpit seats on our catamaran.   Again, the workmanship was excellent.

He is not cheap, but the products delivered are excellent and on time.

I highly recommend him"

I just saw a spar he painted and it looked terrific (Jacaranda 2017)
