To accommodate the desires of viewers, here are 10 things you didn’t know about Abbi Murphy.
1. Abbi is a native New Englander
It comes as no surprise to most to learn that Abbi was raised in the historic town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. This is where she grew up. While you would just assume that the reason she is a deckhand is that she grew up around boats because she lived in an oceanside community. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Murphy admitted that she never really had any interest in boating so she didn’t spend a lot of time doing it.
2. Murphy intended to be a lawyer
Abbi didn’t set out to become a deckhand or to have anything at all to do with boats or yachts in her early life. After graduating from high school, she decided that she wanted to become a lawyer. She moved to the larger city of Boston and there she got a job in the Governor of Massachusetts office, and at the same time, began attending college classes as an independent student. She was successful in studies and maintained a perfect GPA, and earned a full scholarship to law school. She even got a job at a law firm in Boston.
3. Murphy’s life changed on a Greek celebratory vacation
Abbi Murphy had a lot of reasons to be happy and to celebrate the success she had experienced. It seemed that her hard work and dedication had paid off.

The experience was so profound that she quit her job as a lawyer.
4. Abbi had an epiphany
Abbi Murphy made a big decision while on her sailing trip to Greece. She loved sailing so much that the was determined to learn how to do it herself. She spent a year learning the basics as well as the finer points of sailing. She moved to Greece where she works as a first mate on the Atlantic 61′. She was hired by the company that she had booked to take her Greek sailing vacation. It’s not ironic, it’s more like fate.
