That is the HMS Flake 99, what is being called the world's first amphibious ice cream truck. Named after an ice cream treat and commissioned by the dairy behind Cadbury, the Flake 99 was created to celebrate Britain's National Ice Cream Week. The truck spent its first day afloat puttering down the Thames, but there are plans for it to tour various beaches and maybe, just maybe, make it to the canals of Venice. Here's a video of the truck/boat in action:
