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]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''. It is manufactured by [[Nagasaki]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
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]].
+
== Design ==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: 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 ''[[Grand Theft Auto 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.
   
== Description ==
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the design of the Dinghy is very close, if not identical, to the 3D-era Dinghy.
Throughout its appearances, the Dinghy is primarily distinguished by its inflatable hull, but is further categorized into two designs:
 
   
* 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 V, the design of the Dinghy remains basically the same as in GTA IV. The Dinghy has now two distinctive 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.
* 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 San Andreas, the default radio station in the Dinghy is [[CSR 103.9]]. Oddly, almost every time it plays the "Motownphilly" song, performed by Boyz II Men. as it would be set to play each time.
+
===3D Universe===
* In GTA San Andreas, there's a visual effect glitch that has Carl go into an "invisible chair" sitting position for one second as he changes the radio station.
+
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. However, it is a poor choice for combat, as the driver is highly exposed.
* In GTA IV, the default radio station in the Dinghy is [[Liberty Rock Radio 97.8]].
+
* In GTA IV, the Dinghy serves as an [[Antagonist]] boat in most missions, where the [[Squalo]] serves as a [[Protagonist]] boat.
+
Because of its flat bottom reducing friction between the ground and the boat, the Dinghy is perfect for purposely grounding up a beach when in a hurry, as it can easily be pushed back. In fact, that's what it was meant to do, as a lightweight, agile, fast boat that doesn't need to be properly docked to stay still.
* In GTA Vice City, the Dinghy serves as one of the boats used by the French agents in the mission [[All Hands On Deck]], the other being the [[Marquis]] and [[Tropic]].
+
* In GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony there is a unique dinghy. It is metallic blue with a red finish. It can be found in a [[Drug Wars]] mission with [[Armando Torres]] and [[Henrique Bardas]].
+
===HD Universe===
* The GTA: San Andreas Dinghy uses the GTA: Vice City model, only the texture differs.
+
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 two powerful outboard engines.
  +
  +
Realistically, there are two tachometers on the dash, due to the fact the boat has two engines.

"If you like your dinghies like you like your prophylactics then this is the one for you. A lightweight, high capacity rigid-hulled inflatable boat that's good enough for a team of sailors on shore leave."

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, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Nagasaki in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D UniverseEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: 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 Grand Theft Auto 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 Grand Theft Auto: 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 distinctive 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.
