The record for the Longest dragon boat has been broken in Cambodia, with a colossal build measuring 87.3 m (286 ft 5 in) – almost the same length as the height of the Statue of Liberty!
According to Guinness World Records, the dragon boat is almost the same length as the Statue of Liberty.
The record was achieved by the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC), Prey Veng and Prey Veng Provincial Administration in Cambodia who built the boat using traditional methods.
Six straight logs and some stumps where used to form the boat. The timber for the boat was taken from Koki msoav (Hopea odorata) trees, which are renown in the country for being highly water-resistant.
