The player attacking the Da Nang Boys on the freighter during the mission The Da Nang Thang

The Da Nang Boys Freighter is a large freighter in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. It is featured in the mission The Da Nang Thang in which Carl assaults and subsequently boards the ship, rescuing captive Vietnamese refugees and kills the Da Nang Boys leader The Snakehead. From the name, the ship is owned by the San Fierro gang, the Da Nang Boys.


The freighter is moored out the San Fierro Bay by the Gant Bridge. The ship is based on American style container ships, with 2 levels; the upper deck and the hull, both levels filled with shipping containers.

Although the ship only appears during a single mission, it is accessible before and after the mission (with exception to the bridge, which is locked before the mission). If the player starts from one end of the ship (from the bow or the bridge), the player will face an obstacle course-like deck in order to get to the other side. The only way to board the ship is with an aircraft, such as a helicopter or the jetpack. A ladder is present which leads to the bow, but is non-functional outside of the mission.
