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 160+ pages of information on vendors and services in Papeete and some businesses in Mo'orea and Raiatea. 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 Maps.me (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) gmail.com

Without a doubt if you are looking for someone to assist you in either electrical assistance or mechanical assistance, I'd recommend contacting John Cristian Lloyd. A boat owner and cruiser himself, he approached each project I had (and there were many) with thoroughness, detailed attention (actually reading the product manuals and highlighting which of the various options available we chose to use for future reference for myself or other who may work on the systems later), has methodical attention, professional, honest, personable with a complete set of tools. All the projects he undertook for me were FULLY completed and to my FULL satisfaction (something I can not about various other "professionals" I've hired over the years).
His professional installations of new electronic systems or mechanical systems were to the manufacturers recommended specifications and standards.

Fiberglassing - Christian noticed a few soft spots in my deck while installing new deck fuel fill caps and recommended additional stringers below deck which he did.

Christain is honest, thorough, informative, professional and personal. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants the work on their boat done right.
