"Boat popular with Cuban runners."
GTA Vice City website
"Drape a sweater over the shoulders and throw on some loafers without socks because you've made it! the Speeder is a classic Italian-style wooden speedboat that will make you feel like you're cruising the Mediterranean, quaffing Rosé and secretly hating yourself."
GTA V DockTease description

The Pegassi Speeder is a speed boat that has appeared most in games after GTA III. To date, the Speeder has appeared in the following games:

Description

Between GTA III — GTA V, the Speeder appeared in every game in the sequence except GTA Advance and GTA IV.

Designed as a lean watercraft, the Speeder is a good boat in terms of handling and speed, being the fastest boat in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the third fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and the fourth fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

It is one of the easiest boats to obtain, and can be found at many docks and ports throughout the cities. In GTA Vice City Stories, this boat is very rare and can only be obtained during the smuggling side-missions.

In GTA V, it is part of the free Beach Bum update, and is based on the 1962-1996 Riva Aquarama.

Trivia

  • In a BradyGames guide for GTA Vice City Stories the possible beta name for the Speeder was the "Ambassador", as seen through one of the images in the guide.
  • The boat appears as a reward in the mission All Hands On Deck.
  • The boat name could be a reference to a speeder which is a type of drug that gets you hyper. Possibly, both the Speeder and the Reefer are boats named after drugs.
  • In GTA V, the Speeder is made by Pegassi, the in-game equivalent to Lamborghini; possibly a reference to a 1968 Riva Aquarama which belonged to Lamborghini founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, fitted with a pair of Lamborghini V12s.
  • In GTA V, the GPS appears to be GTA IV's Map (Liberty City) rather than Los Santos.
    • This could either be a reference to GTA IV or this boat may have been in the beta for GTA IV.
