"A big, fast, loud, screw-the-economic-downturn powerboat, the Jetmax screams 'I'm a new-money millionaire and I don't care who knows it!'"
DockTease webpage, GTA V.

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.


In all of its appearances, the Jetmax is defined as one of the best boats, as it offers and excellent speed and acceleration than any other sea vehicle, given that there are only a few sport boats in the games it appeared.

3D Universe

The Jetmax is referred to as the Cuban Jetmax in Grand Theft Auto: 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 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to appear in only a red and yellow paint job, but assumes a wider range of colors in the later games. The Jetmax in general is distinguishable by its large back-mounted supercharged engine, connecting dual exhaust pipes and jet-only propulsion.

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.

HD Universe

The Jetmax in this universe acquires a more conventional design, where it is shorter than the 3D Universe version and the engine features were removed in this rendition. However, it still have a sleek design and again, features a wide range of two-tone colors.

The Jetmax is referred by police radio chatter as a Grotti boat in GTA IV, despite it being called a Shitzu when you enter the boat in GTA V.

3D Universe

The Jetmax is one of the fastest boats in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Jetski beats its speed. Acceleration is impressive due to the powerful engine, surpassing other basic boats and is very comparable to that of the Squalo. Handling may be problematic, as the high engine output and the large bodywork barely allows the boat to turn on a side, therefore limited for straight racing. Resistance is average.

HD Universe

Although the Jetmax is rather conventional in design, it is still the fastest boat. Again, its acceleration seems to be higher than other boats, including the Squalo, but the handling is slightly inferior to that of the mentioned counterpart. The Jetmax, however, seems changed over its 3D Universe counterpart, as the speed is reduced in favour of more control.
