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)

Far and away best general chandlery for sailing boats.  Stocks engines, mounts, some shafts, couplings, engine instruments, exhaust parts, hoses, lighting, electric parts, line, plumbing parts.  Most staff speak English.  Be aware the  free French Polynesia Guide has the shop in the correct street but it is approx. 500 meters further east on Chef Vairaatoa. Owner Is somewhat reticent about placing special orders which may be due to his not being able to compete with duty-free prices. ( Yacht guide to FP map of location is off 500 meters)

Parts for Perkins, Hyundai, Isuzu, Sweden Marine Diesel, Kohler, Cummings.

The store owner was able to find a fitting hollow screw for my Volvo engine whereas Nautisport (the official Volvo distributor) was unable to find the part

Have a reasonable stock of electrical cable, fittings, breakers and lights.  

Some SS fasteners on the side wall.

Ocean 2000 carries Racor filters and housing.  They also carry Dahl Filters

6-2020 reported they had Inox BBQ's for sale

Very well stocked, helpful owner with a wife that is less so. Very good English is spoken. It seems like they had the most varied selection of general chandlery items of all four marine stores that I went to. Note that they have a 24 hour return policy that if exceeded becomes difficult to use; they tried to deducted 50% of the cost after 24 hours. Apparently.... It is all in French at the bottom of their invoice. I would rate this store a 8 out of 10.
