It is manufactured by [[Nagasaki]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
 
== Description ==
 
== Description ==
Throughout its appearances, the Dinghy is primarily distinguished by its inflatable hull, but is further categorized into two designs:
+
===3D Universe===
  +
In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories, the Dinghy is designed as a small inflatable boat with two rear-mounted motors, being one of the smallest boats in each game. The Dinghy spawns commonly in the game's world. The Dinghy can seat only one person however.
  +
===HD Universe===
  +
In GTA IV, the Dinghy bears a brand new design, and now resembles a military [[wp:Rigid-hulled inflatable boat|Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boat]], is available with one or two motors, and can hold a maximum of four people. In GTA IV, it will come with a frame at the front, over the windshield.
   
* In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories and GTA Chinatown Wars, the Dinghy is designed as a small inflatable boat with two rear-mounted motors, being one of the smallest boats in the games.
+
In GTA Chinatown Wars, the design of the Dinghy is very close, if not identical, to the 3D-era Dinghy.
* In GTA IV, the Dinghy resembles a military RHIB (Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boat), is available with one or two motors, and can hold a maximum of four people.
 
   
Due to its size and lightweight construction, the boat is nimble and maneuverable, and has the potential to reach a moderately high top speed. Despite its construction, inflatable portions of the Dinghy do not deflate or burst when shot.
+
In GTA V, the design of the Dinghy remains basically the same as in GTA IV. The Dinghy has now two distinct versions: a Dinghy without the frame over the windshield and two seats, and a second one with the frame moved to the rear end and featuring a third workable light, as well as two extra seats.
   
  +
==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
Designed as a small and light boat, the Dinghy has good acceleration and top speed, and is very maneuverable. Due to it being very common, it comes as a good choice as a water vehicle.
  +
===HD Universe===
  +
The Dinghy, due to it being larger than the 3D Universe rendition, does not performs as well as it did in former games, although it is still one of the best boats in both of its appearances, having good top speed and maneuverability. The boat has 2 powerful outboard engines.

The Dinghy is a small boat which appears 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 Nagasaki in the HD Universe.

Description Edit

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories, the Dinghy is designed as a small inflatable boat with two rear-mounted motors, being one of the smallest boats in each game. The Dinghy spawns commonly in the game's world. The Dinghy can seat only one person however.

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA IV, the Dinghy bears a brand new design, and now resembles a military Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boat, is available with one or two motors, and can hold a maximum of four people. In GTA IV, it will come with a frame at the front, over the windshield.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the design of the Dinghy is very close, if not identical, to the 3D-era Dinghy.

In GTA V, the design of the Dinghy remains basically the same as in GTA IV. The Dinghy has now two distinct versions: a Dinghy without the frame over the windshield and two seats, and a second one with the frame moved to the rear end and featuring a third workable light, as well as two extra seats.
