Places not to be forgotten and memories of adventures to cherish forever is what you can expect from a Tahiti yacht charter in the South Pacific. Take advantage of the recent Tahiti charter tax drop from 12% to 5% of gross revenues and embark on the holiday of your dreams in this breath-taking French Polynesia yacht charter destination. The tax reduction combined with the recent extension of yachts allowed to stay up to 36 months in Tahiti ‘duty free’ creates a good opportunity for yacht owners in the Asia Pacific to base their yachts in Tahiti. We have selected a few of our favourite Tahiti charter yachts, offering fantastic accommodation, indoor and outdoor areas for entertainment, and last but not least professional and highly skilled crew aboard.
