From starting his first Diving School, Mike has continually pushed forward the barriers of scuba diving. in 1981 he acquired the words first custom built twin hull dive vessel (Watersport) and since then has built new vessels (Supersport, Spoilsport and Paradise Sport), each time raising the standards of liveaboards.
