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.

Electrician (12V / 24V)

Guy Cordier

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:
