lake boat from Austria. It was used in the TV fantasy mini-series The 10th Kingdom, which apparently had good reviews but bombed.
The Hallstattersee is a huge Alpine lake. The mountains just plummet into the water, so it is impossible to build much around it. As a result, the town of Hallstatt could only be reached by boat until fairly recently, but despite this major barrier to trade the town was rich even in Roman times because of a huge natural deposit of salt in the mountains behind.
The boat is described by Turks as a salt boat, but apparently this pointy punt, known as a platten or zillen, has always been a pleasure boat. Locals claim it is the prototype of the Tuebingen stocherkahn and the Oxbridge punt, apparently on the basis that they all have flat bottoms.
