A brand new marina is due to be completed in March in the increasingly popular and ever-beautiful charter yacht destination of Tahiti.
The marina is being built in downtown Papeete, the largest island in French Polynesia, as a supplement to Marina Taina. This existing marina can accommodate 550 yachts to include 20 superyacht berths for vessels up to 60m/197ft, however there has been growing demand from superyacht Owners and charterers choosing Tahiti as an alternative summer destination.
The new marina will include an impressive 200m/656ft berth along with state-of-the-art facilities such as free WiFi. The development is part of an ongoing effort by the Port Authority and Tahiti Tourism to attract superyachts which in recent months has included the import taxes levied on long-term visiting yachts and/or vessels registered in the region to 8%.

Situated within the breathtaking Society Islands in the heart of French Polynesia, the island of Tahiti epitomises the idyllic charm of a South Pacific yacht charter. Seemingly erupting from the crystalline waters into dramatic, vertiginous volcanic peaks, the paradise island setting provides a spectacular setting for a luxury yacht vacation. The surrounding shallow waters provide unlimited snorkelling and diving opportunities before retreating back to your own charter yacht to relax, dine and watch one of the island’s world famous sunsets.
