Question What is this???

O.K. I tried this question in The Bilge, but no one knew what it was. I am assuming it is boat related until someone tells me it isn't.

I see these going down the highway all the time on flatbeds. WTF are they? I asked an engeeneer friend of mine when we saw one and he didn't know either. It is about 30 - 40 feet long and about 8-10 feet wide. The gray represents an opening in the back (or front or whatever way it goes).

Looks like fiberglass. It looks like it could go in something. Notice the front(?) looks designed to possibly fit over a cab of something. The hole in the back looks like a door or a hatch or something.

WTF???

Looks like an APACHE with a swim step and a cut out for a turbine.

Its the new swimming pool offered by Fountain Powerboats; hence the beak that looks like a parrot.

Can't be a new boat model- no steps. Doesn't everybody know... a boat won't even move forward without steps.
