The Marquis is a long single-hull sailboat with a [[wp:Bermuda rig|Bermuda rig]] and propulsion of the motor in the rear, features that have not changed much since its introduction.

The Marquis is a sailboat that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Dinka in the HD Universe.

DescriptionEdit

The Marquis is a long single-hull sailboat with a Bermuda rig and a propulsion motor in the rear, features that have not changed much since its introduction. While one of the largest boats in the games and common in various locations of the games, the boat is significantly slow (due to its underwhelming motor) and has stiff controls. Despite its design, the ship's sails are of no practical use as they are down and completely rolled up.

While the Marquis in pre-GTA IV games have long been depicted as a leisure sailboat, the GTA IV rendition of the Marquis sports a more luxurious design with additional living quarters underneath the mast. In comparison to the former's blocky design, GTA IV rendition is also sleeker and modernized.

In GTA V, the Marquis may spawn with either two sails attached to the mast, or with no sails at all. Similar to previous games, the sails are simply for decorative purposes, and serve no practical use. The sails may flutter loosely in the wind, but they do not move the boat in any way. Unlike previous games, the Marquis' mast is solid and will not be able to pass through solid objects such as bridges.

Its only advantage is to be able to carry lots of people, which is of little use, unless if in multiplayer. Also, it can be used to transport large gangs in GTA San Andreas, but other, smaller boats can also easily carry 8 people, like the Reefer, Tropic or Coastguard.

VersionsEdit
