Paul Sloan, CEO of Tahiti Tourisme
It is with pride that we are launching the first issue of our newsletter dedicated to the Superyacht Industry and its key players. Over the years, many owners and captains have chosen The Islands of Tahiti as a preferred destination and based their yachts here for a few months, sometimes more.
Many have returned and also have offered the opportunity to other high net worth individuals to charter their boats and discover French Polynesia, an expanse as large as Western Europe, and also known as the South Pacific hub when cruising from Panama and the Galapagos Islands.
Our destination has a major card to play in the development of this industry in this part of the world. Like every other year, Tahiti Tourisme will be attending the Monaco Yacht Show and Fort Lauderdale International Yacht Show, bringing a unique “Tahitian flair” to the signature event of the show in Florida (the “International Superyacht Society Awards for Design and Leadership” gala dinner).
Endless safe cruising grounds, amazing activities, dedicated professional services, a rich and authentic Polynesian culture, and a welcoming spirit reflected in the smiling faces our local people: all part of a Tahitian experience that we are delighted to share with you.
