"I found the crew to be genuine and really pleasant to talk to. Captain William has a calm demeanor, a very nice guy, and he is very experienced in the cruising grounds that MILK & HONEY has advertised. The boat has a beautiful wood interior paired with pretty artwork and calming interior décor – it would appeal to anyone. She’s really in excellent condition!"

"MILK & HONEY looked very good and fresh. Her sun deck is well laid out with sun chairs and sun-pad, and the Jacuzzi is a real Jacuzzi, not a small one that squeeze people in. The Sky Lounge is cozy and well laid out. It was nice to see how they updated twin guest stateroom so it now can convert to a king."

"MILK & HONEY looks fantastic. I have not been onboard for over 3 years and the refit looks amazing. Great spaces, light and bright and very clean. Captain William was a delight and I feel very confident with his knowledge of the cruising areas that the boat will be located in. Crew was friendly, enthusiastic and on top of their game.”

My clients had a wonderful time on MILK & HONEY. In our performance evaluation they provided an “Above and Beyond all our Expectations” which is also the highest service rating that our clients can provide. They were first timers and are definitely hooked - thanks to the service of the crew. They will most definitely be back and most probably to MILK & HONEY hopefully soon!
My clients had a fantastic time onboard and loved everything about trip. Just received this great feedback:
“Thank you for checking. We had a wonderful trip, definitely went by way too quick. The captain and his crew were truly first rate. The food was fantastic. Also, the boat was very well cared for.“
I am happy to inform you that the two week charter of the yacht MILK & HONEY was a great success. The yacht has high quality interior with beautiful appointment. It has a very convenient layout. The entire family, both my son and his family, my daughter and her family, and I enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The entire crew on the yacht MILK & HONEY was very accommodating, very friendly and very pleasant from am to pm. They were tireless in offering us activities such as water sports, etc. I am glad I chartered the yacht for two weeks. It was just too nice to have to leave after one week.
