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 is 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 WCs 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.

Having never sailed before this was an adventurous decision. That decision turned out to be amazing and to further her quest to pursue a career on the ocean she left the freezing winter of Colorado and moved to the sunny summer of Australia. There she was able to meet people and make friends that would teach her the skills needed to work in the yachting industry. Lesley has always loved the water and traveling so this lifestyle is a perfect fit. With a fun-loving, friendly personality and a passion for what she does she makes the guests feel welcome and cared for, ensuring a unique and memorable holiday experience for all aboard Milk and Honey.

This active individual is a true waterman who is at home free diving, spear fishing, scuba diving, or just watching the waves on the beach and is also an avid runner and hiker. Working as a deckhand, Jake always makes sure the outside of the boat is shipshape and he makes sure that everyone is always having a fun and safe time.
