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)

Te Mana Import on the far north side of town industrial area. I met with Pouena Setefano, an Aussie ex-pat with the kings English…first big plus of the day.

They work on trucks and large commercial equipment but he was confident his guys could solve AP RAM issues.

A couple days later it was done and Pouena agreed to drop it off to us at Taina Marina (he lives 5 min past there on his way home)

Their shop rate was 5500 FP/hr they billed 4 hrs and parts and bits and pieces (he also handed me the old pieces and a spare set they ordered) the total bill came to FP 34,610…about $350 USD plus the beer I bought him at the pub.
