French Polynesia, Raiatea: Repair Facilities

By SY Mary Ann — last modified Nov 27, 2017 02:24 PM
We have now been in Raiatea (French Polynesia, Society Islands) for just over a year, and going through postings for repair facilities on Noonsite, I find that an update might be useful.

Published: 2017-11-27 00:00:00
Countries: French Polynesia

Boatyards:

Chantier Naval des Iles Sous le Vent does now allow liveaboards, as well as do it yourself work.

Both boatyards are filling up fast, and it is necessary to make an advanced booking.

 

Engine Repairs:

Formation Conseil Plaisance (Francis Bernard) is not operating any longer. Nautisport will not repair engines. They are just a ship chandler and retailer for several engine makers.

One excellent mechanic is:

Thierry Duvauchelle
He will repair any diesel engine or outboard and can handle various general mechanical problems (windlass, watermakers, etc…). His forte are Perkins, Volvo, Yanmar and Westerbeck and all outboard brands.
Phone: 87784792

Electrics and Electronics:

Two electricians not listed on noonsite are:

Cyprien, who works partly for the charter companies, but will do external work - is recommended. Phone: 87253529

The other one is Sebastien who has a good reputation. Phone: 87380504

 

Rigs and Sails:

Rigging: Bruzzo Plaisance Expertise as listed, and Fred Hermelin, who works partly for the Raiatea Carenage Services.
Tel: 87749560
E-mail: [email protected]

Sail and canvas making: Besides Artimon and Voilerie Sellerie Aveia, there is another excellent sails and canvas maker:
Nicolas Jeannot, located very near the two shipyards (almost right across the road). Nicolas has been making sales for 20 years and can handle pretty much any job. I will write more about him later, as he is in the process of building a general “Yacht Services Company” that includes bicycle rental, laundry, concierge services (agent for Marine Warehouse in Florida), and soon  will have two bungalows for people working on their boats at the nearby yards.
Phone: 87709901

Yacht Surveyors:

Beside Bruzzo Marine Expertise as listed, there is another surveyor:
Christophe Citeau
Phone: 87796381
E-mail:[email protected]

 

Woodworking:

Two contacts: The first one is a proper carpenter who will build furniture and complicated stuff. Patrick. Telephone:87795808.

The second one is more focused on boat work, and will also fix hatches and do fibre work: William. Phone: 87279900.

 

I hope this is helpful.
