This year’s Merdeka Fiesta occurred in conjunction with Simpson Marine’s 35th anniversary. For Asia’s largest sailing specialists and yacht brokers, this annual event which takes place at the Avillion Admiral Cove marina in Port Dickson is always intended to showcase the yachting lifestyle. Indeed, there was plenty of that on display with various supercar and luxury marques pulling in from Laborghinis and Maseratis to Porsches and Lotuses to signal the start of festivities.
On that weekend, Aston Martin showcased their high performance grand tourer, the DBS while the amphibious My Super Petrel seaplane was also available for those who fancied a jaunt into the skies. Onboard the Lagoon 620 catamaran, guests enjoyed an intimate discovery of whisky’s best-kept secret, The Mortlach with tastings of its core expressions accompanied by insider narratives from the guest brand ambassador Aubrey Sim.
