About MILK AND HONEY

Operating in the Caribbean, East Coast of North America and the Bahamas

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.

Captain Kenny Tassin is a PADI Open Water Scuba instructor. Three crew are also certified divers.

Testimonials

I have had the pleasure of assisting this family's charters for over 16 years and feel this was the best follow-up report received from them yet. They had a GRAND time! They loved every minute aboard the MILK & HONEY, especially the Captain and crew. In particular, they appreciated the itinerary, the fact that the captain shared such intimate knowledge of the area, the yacht toys were always made ready ahead of time, the food. and the manner in which the crew was so attentive to each charter member. Everything went flawlessly and their Wedding Anniversary was a success all thanks to you! With all the work that goes into our charters, it is especially nice to receive such a complimentary follow-up from our clients. Kenny, I want to personally thank you and your crew for all the hard work during the charter and the coordination from you and your chef leading up to the charter. It is your professionalism that helped me with another successful charter and I look forward to working with you again in the very near future. By the way, don't be surprised if you see these individuals again on board MILK & HONEY for another 'holiday of fun' in the near future.
Charter Broker, August 2015

I can¹t recommend MILK & HONEY highly enough. The boat was immaculately clean and well maintained. All seven crew were great. Captain Kenny is really helpful. He is an instructor and I dove with him every day.
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.
G.S., February 2015

Dear Crew of Milk and Honey: 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

Our cruise was off the charts. My family and guests had a fabulous time. Milk and Honey is one great boat and Captain Kenny, Chandra, and the crew made for a perfect cruise.  Kenny made a terrific plan tied to the weather and our interests and executed it perfectly."
December 2014


The crew exceeded our expectations. The entire crew was first class – the captain was very open to visitors on the bridge and easy to work with – changes to the plan because of weather, etc. were openly discussed and executed. The crew was fairly young which meshed nicely with our families. The food was great and in fact in the future we would eat more on board. The yacht was beautiful and beautifully maintained. We had a great time!

Dear Captain Kenny and the wonderful crew of MILK & HONEY!
 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.B. April 2014

It was a wonderful trip on Milk and Honey and it was made perfect by the kindness, attention to detail and big, friendly smiles from everyone – as well as delicious food, which we all overindulged in.  You all made our stay relaxed, fun comfortable and wanting for nothing – from the morning cups of tea that just appeared, company when I snorkeled to noticing that our toothpaste had nearly run out!  And the sun shone every day.  Perfect!!
Client April 2014


Thanks again for all great co-operation your side, it has been a pleasure to book M&H, please do be sure to thank the owner for providing us with such a great yacht and crew (and choosing such a great CA of course)!
R.P. (Charter Broker) April 2014

The crew was extremely professional and we enjoyed the trip very much. They all were very knowledgeable in their respective areas and all their suggestions were good ideas. We couldn't have asked for a better boat or crew. Looking forward to doing it again.
