Milk and Honey Thanks to a very recent and complete upgrade, the sought-after charter yacht Milk and Honey is better than ever. Solidly built by the premier yard of Palmer Johnson and beautifully maintained, she accommodates ten guests in five staterooms. Exceptionally large for her length, this sleek 125-foot, tri-deck yacht offers the volume and space of a 150-footer. Among the abundance of indoor and outdoor spaces is the sun deck, with a spa pool, bar, and wicker settees. Also on this deck are oversized lounge chairs that adjust to face the sun or shade and can convert to sun pads. One level down, on the boat deck, there's a large table for dining under the stars. Meals are also served on the main deck, either in the formal dining salon or in the soft breeze on the aft deck. Throughout the interior, serene colors and supple fabrics complement such rich woods as cherry, mahogany, burled olive, and inlaid black walnut. The main salon, with a long, curving settee and chairs, has a full bar as well as a large high-definition 3DTV and a state-of-the-art sound system. The full-beam master suite on the main deck encompasses a private office, large stateroom with centerline king-size bed, and his-and-her vanities and WC's connecting to a central steam shower and tub room. Three queen staterooms and one twin stateroom, all ensuite, are located on the lower deck. As would be expected on a yacht of this caliber, no detail has been overlooked, including zero-speed stabilizers to ensure guests are always comfortable as well as expertly looked after by a polished crew of 7.

Charter Broker, August 2015
I have a really challenging diet (no meat, dairy, or carbs) at the moment and the chef produced amazing food throughout even with these limitations.
We will definitely book MILK & HONEY again.
This was the best vacation we have ever taken!!! The details, service, thoughtfulness and hard work were beyond compare. The dives were magnificent. The X-Mas 14 Beach Trip was a delight. The search for the family movies were epic! The 4 star meals were exceptionally delicious. Each hand-picked destination was incredible. The creative touches were beyond amazing!.... The gorgeous table settings, the photography, the stockings, the Santa hats, the real Christmas tree, the fabulous video, and the Christmas lights were all a work of art, each and every morning, afternoon and evening. The table service would have impressed the Queen of England! The effort to keep us from going overboard or suffering any tiny cut was the best baby-sitting I have ever seen. And the prized t-shirts and baseball hats!!! We can never thank you enough for your unequaled generosity and kindness.
Milk and Honey will forever be one of our fondest family memories.
B.B., December 2014
What an utterly magical week we have all had with you all - lazy days of sunshine, snorkeling, diving, and nights spent under the stars - we couldn't have imagined a better holiday!
You and your crew have all worked tirelessly to ensure that our family and, more importantly, our guests have had a fantastic time, no request denied, cheerful, and a delight all the time.
We will always have the special memories of a wonderful week with you.
R.P. (Charter Broker) April 2014
Thank you for a wonderful week. We loved every minute on boardyou kept us very happy, safe, well fed and taken care of! You are truly the kindest and most professional crew we have ever met. We hope to be back sometime soon. Thanks again for the best week and best charter ever!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year
I wanted to say thank you to you both and please pass along my thanks and appreciation to the owner as well. You both were of course a pleasure to work with on the charter on board MILK & HONEY from February 23- March 2, 2013. I spoke with my client late last week and he was very happy! He thanked me for pushing MILK & HONEY and the crew to them and made several comments below:
They genuinely liked the crew, they were all very friendly, easy going and enjoyed by all of the guests
The client and his wife both liked Kenny and Chandra very much
They thought the yacht was very comfortable, a great boat and they were very happy with the selection
The weather was perfect
They genuinely appreciated the zero speed stabilizer upgrade
The chef was fantastic, great food and sense of humor
The client realized as he stood in the pilothouse looking out that he was more relaxed that he could even imagine
They would request more beach parties when they do it again.
Thank you again for all of your hard work, efforts and to the owner for providing a quality yacht, crew and charter program. I appreciate the ability to book MILK & HONEY and I will do so in the future! I have sent her out to clients for the New England summer already.
