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.

Techni Marine  

address is the end of Fare Ute but to haul out you must approach from the pass east of Papeete due to the low bridge between Fare Ute and Muto Uta.  Email:  technimarine@mail.pf  tel 689  40 43 02 22.  Manager speaks english.

Have two travel lifts one is 75 metric tonnes, the other 300 metric tonnes.  The smaller may not be appropriate for the width of some cats.  The haul-out price for our 32 ft sail boat including the power wash was  39276xpf ($353.48). Lay days were 6473xpf ($58.25).  Not sure if the per foot rate is different for the latger travel lift.  You can do any amount of the work yourself you wish.  It is very convenient to all marine suppliers available in FP.  Electric and water are metered.  

They have welders including TIG and MIG welding.  They can spray in the yard (depending of wind conditions) including polyurethane.  Staff are friendly and the facilities looked good for toilet and shower blocks.
