Not a boat, but a train, and unfortunately no space for anyone inside the shell!

From a German forum
"A 1954 VW-Porsche prototype Escher Kleinbahn
The prototype in Hamburg.
These Were Little trains built from 1954 to 1971 and were used in parks and botanical gardens. Which three cars pulled it had space for 90 passengers. Its not a accident that the design of the locomotive looks like a cross between the legendary TEE train and the Porsche 356 This locomotive was powered by a VW industrial engine and was the prototype of the VW-Porsche trains."
