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.

Motu Uta

Eric Sanford - Speaks Excellent English


Note: Mismarked on the marina map.  They are located on the first left once over the bridge in Motu Ute.  Then turn left once in the yard and backtrack towards the bring.  Last opening before you get to end of building

The biggest machine shop which services the large commercial enterprises is Poly Industries which is on Motu Uta in the first building on the harbour side of the road after the bridge from Fare Ute.  Their charges are $120 an hour.  Excellent work. Expect to wait several days.
