Mike Abbott graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science. Shortly after college, his love of boating was revealed when he took a job aboard a 151′ Feadship that cruised extensively in the Atlantic and Caribbean. After a few years of life on the water, in 2000 Mike decided to join Global Marine Insurance. He started on the small boat team and quickly moved up to join the yacht underwriting group. In 2002, he was asked to relocate to South Florida to expand Global Marine’s presence in the region. Mike partnered with the country’s largest yacht dealer (Allied Marine Group); and over the next 10 years grew the company’s mega-yacht business into one of the largest in the country. He moved back to Global Marine’s headquarters in Traverse City, MI in 2011 to become a part owner. He currently heads the company’s P&C division and is the senior marine underwriter in charge of the mega and super yacht areas.
