Guess what it is...

The answer is that it's a replica of a Blisworth Tunnel Steam Tug -- note the dummy steam funnel on the front which must make it a nightmare to get through some low bridges!
It's actually called Pilot more here though no name's visible on the seemingly just repainted sides.

What's fascinating is the bow shape, designed to push rubbish away to the sides of the boat as it worked through the tunnel where it towed other craft through.
