Can't give you specific dollar amounts, but we found the hypermarche in Tahiti, near the marina, to be very expensive, say 150 - 200% of North American. On the flip side, it was the most incredible supermarket I have ever seen. Take an immense French supermarket and drop it in the middle of a tropical ocean and you get the idea. The market in downtown Papeete was also very good. Baguettes are cheap though.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
