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)

7-2022 SV Liward Just had Sellerie Marine de Tahiti do a complicated repair of our Bimini. Charlotte did a fantastic job, on time, and the price was reasonable. She is very professional and uses the proper materials and machine. It does not even look like a repair. Charlotte speaks English. Very happy with her service and quality!

5-2022 SV Auntie After 2 no shows by a competitor, I contacted Charlotte to make a new mainsail cover. She is in demand and busy, but she kept in communication until the promised start date. Worth the wait! This is the best mainsail cover I’ve ever had made! The fit is perfect, the craftsmanship top notch, and  Charlotte and her crew are friendly and helpful.

05-2022 SV CAPALL MARA They did a relatively small job for us but it involved innovation.
They came promptly and finished a day early.
Will speaks excellent English.
They do cushions, awnings and sail covers.

03-2022 SV Airborne Charlotte Jardin, Sellerie Marine de Tahiti, recently completed a new bimini and shades for our boat. She provided excellent customer support, and good communication in English (note she also speaks fluent Spanish and French).

Her company offers an excellent supply of quality sample materials for the project which she orders ahead of the start of sewing. After making the templates on board our boat, she completes the cutting and sewing etc. in her large workshop in Tipaeru; Charlotte lives on a boat in the Taina Marina area. Charlotte was always courteous and responsive to requests for changes. Charlotte honored her quotation which detailed materials and labor estimates. We feel very happy with the results and have recommended her to several other boats who have used or plan to use her company
