A large crowd gathered at Island Water World’s flagship store in Cole Bay, St. Maarten in March to celebrate the marine store’s 50th Anniversary. Drinks flowed, speeches were made and a dazzling fireworks display lit the night sky. Many members of the company’s founding family flew in to join the celebrations. Addressing the revelers, Island Water World managing director Sean Kennelly described the fascinating early history of the company and thanked the loyal staff, past and present, whose contributions had made the business a success. He then raised a glass of Champagne to the next 50 years.
