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 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

I spoke to you on the dock the other day about the retirement of Richard Lecler. He passed on the name of a recommended and vetted replacement. The guy I contacted is named Guy Cordier, is French, lives aboard at Taiaina, sails to NZ in November every year for cyclone season. He speaks English pretty well as well as French and Spanish. He was prompt and thorough and fixed my stuff in good time. I had a 12v problem he searched out and solved, a 120v he searched out and solved and is going to help me replace my old battery bank and expand my amp hours capacity. He has a partner that he says is more a pure electrician but Guy does lots of other stuff (generator repair, watermaker repair, even epoxy and fiberglass repair).
His contact is as follows:
