He may only be 8 months old, but Prince George is ready to go on a voyage in his brand-new custom-made miniature boat.

After Prince William and Kate Middleton competed against each other in two friendly sailing races around Auckland Harbour on Friday, the royal couple received a tiny dinghy for their beautiful boy from marine technology firm Sealegs.

The proud parents—the precious prince stayed behind in Wellington with his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo—looked somewhat surprised when the gift, which was decorated with a vibrant red bow, was unveiled. Perhaps they were wondering how they will manage to get the mini-Sealegs back to the United Kingdom, let alone through customs.

According to Sealegs chief executive David Glen, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were "astounded" by the "inflatable amphibious little contraption for youngsters."

"They cannot wait for it to get to Kensington Palace," Glen explained. "But they have to work out where to use it. The duchess said she regretted he was not here to give it a try now."

During the family's three-week tour Down Under, Prince George is already the proud owner of a baby kangaroo backpack and a big blue teddy bear from his group playdate.
