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.

Faa'a Vallee de Nuutana

Near the Nuutania prison. Take the Nuutania road at the SODIMEC store crossroads and drive up for approx. 5 minutes. You will see a sign when you need to turn right to reach the sail loft.  Speak good english


Very nice guys. See examples of their work on their facebook page. They do  most of the mega tact repairs.

Tahiti Sails were helpful for the sliders we needed for the sails, and offered also to bring them down to Marina Taina for us

We wanted to let everyone know about an excellent sail loft in Tahiti. They just did some repairs for Liward and we were very happy. Prompt, Professional, and Reasonable. They speak english.
