The firm has been launched in 2008 in Raiatea, capital of Leeward Islands, French Polynesia.
Raiatea is a major port of call for many of the sailors crossing the Pacific Ocean or wishing to start a long journey from there. Thanks to this sail flow, the number of power and sailboats for sale on the website is constantly fueled.
Every ship for sale on the website is located in French Polynesia but also in New Caledonia, New Zealand, Australia and other places in the Pacific. The global dimension of the activity is strengthened by an affiliation to YACHT WORLD : sales are closed for buyers from France, Europe, North and South America, Australia and Asia.
Monohulls and multihulls, amateur-built or shipyard, new or used powerboats, RAIATEA YACHT proposes a wide range of boats meeting the needs of sea-lovers.
