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 160+ pages of information on vendors and services in Papeete and some businesses in Mo'orea and Raiatea. 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 Maps.me (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) gmail.com

The best stock of bolts especially stainless is VBP.  They carry a number of stainless shackles, hose champs, rod stock, and even stock helicoils; But don’t expect to find imperial sizes.

We needed a new steering cable in 7mm stainless steel, and VBP had it. They were very helpful, and also had a lot of shackles, rings and bolts in SS marine quality.

They also have a lot of good tools, like drill bits etc. In the high end, though, with good quality.
