Interested in Chartering This Yacht?
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.
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.

His love for the water found him in The Bay Islands of Honduras as a boat Captain and Dive Guide for several years. Captain Kenny's 28 year career in the yachting industry has been focused mainly on charters. His areas of cruising expertise includes the Western Caribbean, Bahamas, Florida, New England, Western Med, and Alaska.

Chandra was raised on the waters of eastern Long Island, spending summers living aboard her parents’ boat in Sag Harbor. At 20 Chandra became the Assistant Harbor Master and Dock Master for the Village of Sag Harbor and gained lots of experience running boats and tying up large yachts which laid the ground work for her 500 ton Masters License. While working there she met Captain Kenny and they decided to share their passion for life and the sea together. Besides keeping the interior of the boat in impeccable order, Chandra ensures guests will stay well pampered with the highest level of service and a beautiful easy going smile.Chef de Cuisine: KEVIN RICHARDSON

After college, Steve moved to Florida from Indiana to get closer to the sea and quickly found work at a marina. It wasn’t long before he was hooked on boats and landed a job as deckhand on a 114’ yacht. After three years on that yacht Steve decided to take his career to the next level and obtained his Master’s License in 2014. A few months later he took command on the same yacht as Captain. Two years later, with a desire to expand his horizons Steve joined Milk & Honey as First Mate where he has become PADI certified and is currently studying for a larger license. His keen eye for detail and quest for fun will ensure you enjoy every moment aboard whether on deck, in the water or on a shore-side excursion.Stewardess: SAMANTHA STEWART
Samantha grew up in West Palm Beach where she developed her love for the ocean. It was after her prior career as a veterinary technician that she made the decision to pursue a more adventurous lifestyle in which she could acquire new skills, travel, and be on the water. Her previous yachting experience has helped hone her fine dining and hospitality knowledge. Samantha enjoys exploring new towns and places as well as trying new things such as skydiving, zip lining, and scuba diving. Sam’s laid back and positive attitude creates a relaxing, comfortable environment for everyone to share. MILK & HONEY is happy to have her onboard.Engineer: BLAINE WISE

He has built several boats and has been build engineer on several others, now works mostly on motor yachts. Blaine knows how to get the job done, and keep the boat purring along.Deckhand: DANIEL WOOD
Growing up in New York State, it took a move to San Diego for Daniel to start working on the water. After passing beautiful yachts daily, Dan became intrigued at the thought of working and traveling aboard such a vessel. After a few years of backpacking and working in Alaska, Daniel took the plunge into yachting and plans to pursue a career in the engineering department. An avid diver, Daniel enjoys spearfishing and catching lobster to bring back to eat as well as wake boarding, skiing, tubing and free diving. When he's not on a boat, you can find Daniel far off the beaten path, exploring new countries, soaking up culture, and
enjoying the local fare.
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.
Client, August 2016
*****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.

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.
Client, 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."Client, 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!Client, July 2014
****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.
Client, 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
