MarineMax founder and CEO Bill McGill and other members of the company’s management team rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning to celebrate the 110th annual New York Boat Show.

The ceremony highlights the recreational boat retailer’s participation in the show, which opens today and continues through Sunday at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan.

“With a recovering economy, we are poised to capitalize on this year’s boat show season,” McGill said in a statement. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off the New York Boat Show, considered the oldest and longest-running show in the country, than by ringing the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange.

“Through the downturn, we worked hard to assure that MarineMax remained strong and stayed committed to taking care of our customers and team members. We are looking forward to a strong New York Boat Show as we continue through a busy boat show season.”

MarineMax began publicly trading under the ticker symbol HZO on the NYSE in June of 1998.
