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)

There are very few 12V panels most are 24-48V for residential or commercial.  But stock is constantly rotating so be sure to check it out

10-2019 (S/V Moskito Valiente)  At the end we bought with Sunzil and we’re very happy with it in overall! :)

2017-2018 (SV Jacaranda)  We have purchased a few different panels from Sunzil and have been very happy with the service and price.  Martial even dropped them off after work at the Papeete Marina. Martial also shipped a panel to us in the Marquesas as well.  Highly recommend them
