Guinness Book of World Records representatives will evaluate a Cambodian bid for having the world’s longest wooden boat on November 12 in Prey Veng province’s Peam Ror district.
The representatives will assess the size of the boat and its technical specifications before announcing their decision at the end of a ceremony in the district’s Praek Ksay K commune.
The official said the committee wanted to build the boat in Prey Veng city but the water level had receded. He noted that they chose to build the boat in the commune instead.
The boat is 87.3 meters long and 1.99 meters wide and can carry 179 people.
