AKP Phnom Penh, September 19, 2018 —

Building of Cambodia’s longest boat is nearly finished and will be trialled shortly, according to a press release issued yesterday by the committee in charge of the work.

Located in Prey Veng province, the recording breaking boat was named ‘Kambojikaputtakhemaratari” literally meaning the boat of Khmers in Cambodian territory.

A team of Guinness World Record, added the release, is expected to come to evaluate the boat this November.

Made of hardwood with artistic Khmer ancient design, the boat is 85 metres long and 1.55 metres wide, and capable of carrying 179 people.
