Ducks are great swimmers -- but they also make for great boats.

At least according to shipbuilder Christian Bohlin, who sailed his eye-catching duck-shaped ship across Stockholm harbor on May 27.

One of two novelty boats constructed by the shipwright, this waterfowl-inspired watercraft has plenty of high-flying features. The ship reportedly boasts a sauna, a kitchenette and two sleeping cots for bird-brained sailors.

The boat is expected to sell for about $58,000 when it hits the market at an upcoming boat expo in Sweden.
