The Jetmax (also known as the Cuban Jetmax in GTA Vice City) is a cigarette boat available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V. It is manufactured by Grotti in GTA IV and Shitzu in GTA V.
The Jetmax is one of the fastest boats in GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA IV, but in GTA Vice City Stories, the Jetski beats its speed. The Jetmax is referred to as the "Cuban Jetmax" in GTA Vice City, affiliating the boat with the Cuban gang and occasionally appearing in a number of missions where Cuban gang members are present. In addition, the Jetmax is designed in GTA Vice City to appear in only a red and yellow paintjob, but assumes a wider range of colors in games after. The Jetmax in general is distinguishable by its large back-mounted supercharged engine, connecting dual exhaust pipes and jet-only propulsion; these features were removed in the GTA IV rendition of the boat. The GTA San Andreas rendition of the Jetmax is also given a "Jetmax II" designation at the back of its hull, similar to has been done with the Squalo.
The Jetmax's capabilities are evidenced by its use as a reward for certain actions or missions. In GTA Vice City, the Jetmax is unlocked by purchasing the Boatyard. In GTA San Andreas, Carl can unlock the boat by achieving all gold medals at the Boat School.
