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.

Nuatisport Outboard Service (SAV) 689-4053-3070   They are an authorized Suzuki dealer. We needed a two year service on our outboard and I don’t like to change engine and lower gear oil over the water (the outboard is pretty much permanently connected to the dinghy – centre console). They came over and dropped off one of their staff who got in the dinghy with me to travel across the harbor (Papeete) to a boat ramp on the other side and they had a truck and trailer there to pull me out and take it to their service department. They then drove me back to Papeete Marine. The next day they delivered the dinghy back to Papeete marina and I then took them back to the boat ramp where we paid the bill. We tried to tip them but they refused. They are pretty much French only, so unless you speak French, find someone does to book your appointment. We got Franko at the marina to do that for us. Great service.
