Yes, Paul Gauguin definitely had a point when he exiled himself to French Polynesia, specifically Tahiti. Think green mountainous islands in crystal clear waters; when you think pacific, you think Tahiti and Hawaii perhaps… . the latter not being particularly charter- friendly due to the generally high swells and waves – more suitable for surfing than sailing but Tahiti yacht charters are definitely a yachting paradise.
And, yes, we can also put you on a bareboat in Tahiti, with or without skipper, on a nice new boat and a beautiful bunch of islands to visit. Of course we recommend the full treatment of a luxury crewed motor yacht or sailing catamaran or mono-hull with all the trimmings. Lap of luxury and pampered all the way. If you are a DIY boater, there are several reputable bareboat companies that operate in Tahiti, including the Moorings, Sunsail, Dream Yacht and others. We are booking agents for all these companies, many times with better pricing than if you approach them directly.
