The Merdeka Yacht Fiesta with Simpson Marine

Blowin’ in the wind

The recent festive Merdeka weekend saw a select group of sailing enthusiasts and readers of Robb Report gather at the Admiral Marina and Leisure Club in Port Dickson for a day on the water organised by premier yacht brokers and sailing specialists Simpson Marine.

Guests were treated to two sea trials: one on the Beneteau Antares 42 (€245,000, RM1,131,573) and on the Lagoon 42 (€574,804, RM2,654,827). The former is a twin-cabin proposition while the latter is a beautiful catamaran, best enjoyed as a day boat with clear skies.

Event automotive partner Sime Darby Auto Performance provided test drives of Porsche’s SUV duo, the Macan and Cayenne, for those attending the three-day event.
