"It was a perfect trip.Everyone had a wonderful time. The boat was better than I expected. It is a large volume boat. Felt like a 150 footer. Immaculate condition. The crew was excellent. Easy going but spot on all day, every day. Perfect meals. If we go again,we will probably look for this boat and this crew. Thank you for your professional handling of the entire trip.”

Kenny, from my client:
"You were "SPOT ON" (once again)! Your recommendation for MILK & HONEY and her crew was perfect! The photos in the e-mail did not do this yacht justice, as you said! The "baby proofing" on the stairs for my grandchildren set my mind at ease. The owner should be VERY proud of Captain Kenny, Chandra, and crew! We had a great time, and I was VERY impressed with their attention to detail and accommodating attitudes...We couldn't be happier --- Thank you! We'll charter this yacht again.""We loved every second! Kenny runs a great boat and crew…as usual, you steered us in the right direction. We are already planning our next trip on M&H! "Thanks so much and please thank your great crew, Kenny.

My client is one to always provide feedback. You will find the following to be an excellent review from his charter on MILK & HONEY in August:
•Boat is exceptional volume so a lot for the money. Interior design is very functional and practical and my wife liked that.
•Chef is excellent. 100% of his preparations were cooked to perfect temperature. Flavors very good.
•Systems on board were good and easy and not at all temperamental.
•Air conditioning was quiet and effective and the boat felt clean in all respects.
•Captain Kenny is natural and decent and down to earth. He works very harder than any of the other captains we have had. He is humble and talented and said yes, can do to every request.
•His wife Chandra is equally humble and talented. Bright, cheerful, and always on the ball.
•The other crew were capable and clean and respectful. Blaine the engineer was on deck to help more than we have seen from other engineers and delightful.
I believe however that if anyone is going to recognize and define good crew, it’s this client. The accolades that he paid you and your team are exceptional. Kenny, it makes me very proud to represent you and MILK & HONEY in charter. I have always known you “were good,” but the way that my client describes you really defines how you/Chandra set your sights on that higher bar. I just want to thank you for putting such effort and energy into what you do. I am really….so, so impressed…and honored to be a part of your sales force! I also believe that it’s telling about your character in how you made a quick decision to accept this last minute charter, and then how successful it turned out to be. I have tremendous respect for you, Kenny. Thank you again and again.

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 watersports, etc. Captain Kenny and his wife Chandra were the best. The meals that Chef Kevin produced were mouth watering. The planning of the menus by me, Chef Kevin, and Chandra was a good arrangement. I am glad I chartered the yacht for two weeks. It was just too nice to have to leave after one week.
