Words from Paul Sloan, CEO of Tahiti Tourisme


2014 definitely brought the Islands of Tahiti to light as an important superyacht destination. Not only thanks to the efforts made locally to improve the quality of conditions to welcome superyachts, their guests and crew (new marina development project and also yacht transport) but also thanks to the continuing growing general interest in the industry for an emerging destination like ours.

Nestled in the heart of the South Pacific, the Islands of Tahiti remain the first hub for yachts when they arrive from Panama and a place where ocean conservation has been a priority since 2002. This is how we came to work on a common project with the International Superyacht Society to bring Tahiti to an audience of four hundred well-targeted key leaders of the superyacht world during the annual Awards for Design & Leadership gala on 29th October 2014 in Fort Lauderdale. This major public relations event was the perfect opportunity to network and entice owners and captains to add our islands to their list of must-see places.

I would like to take the opportunity of this newsletter, on behalf of the entire Team at Tahiti Tourisme, to wish you all a beautiful holiday season and a fruitful and happy 2015, may it bring you to Tahiti!
