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)

Best stock of line, webbing, chain, carries West Systems in bulk and dispenses at very reasonable price.  Lots of stock which is less than obvious so be sure to ask.  Is a wealth of knowledge about sourcing things. Speaks good English.

Michel has a surprising lot of electrical components in his small store.  Good place to start your search

Michele often has Victron equipement / invertors

Stocks Danfoss compressors has the 35 and the 80 model.  In 3/17 he stocked a keel cooler type condensor.

In 3/17 stocked 5 Lofran windlasses and a large stock of gypsies.

Michel Baltzer owns a chandlery at Marina Taina. He has high quality products and is very knowledgeable. He focuses on ropes, rigging hardware, chain, anchors, plumbing, fiberglass supplies, wiring, and some electrical parts. He doesn’t handle boat maintenance supplies (polish, soap, oil, paint, etc.) For those products got to Sin Tung Hing Marine or Oceans 2000.

Tahiti Yacht Accessories: Excellent and highly knowledgeable business. Kind, helpful, and generous. Extremely well stocked for the size business. More parts for high performance boats than anywhere else. Excellent selection of cordage for our boat. I am left with the impression that the owner would sell the shirt off his back to help you out. I would rate them a 10 out of 10.
