This article is about the speed boat. For the car, see Speeder.

"Boat popular with Cuban runners."

"Drape a sweater over the shoulders and throw on some loafers without socks because you've made it! the Speeder is a classic Italian-style wooden speedboat that will make you feel like you're cruising the Mediterranean, quaffing Rosé and secretly hating yourself."
GTA V DockTease description

The Speeder is a speed boat that has appeared most in games after Grand Theft Auto III. To date, the Speeder has appeared in both 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Pegassi in the HD Universe.


Between GTA III — GTA V, the Speeder appeared in every game in the sequence except GTA Advance and GTA IV.

Designed as a lean watercraft, the Speeder is a good boat in terms of handling and speed, being the fastest boat in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the third fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and the fourth fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

It is one of the easiest boats to obtain, and can be found at many docks and ports throughout the cities. In GTA Vice City Stories, this boat is very rare and can only be obtained during the smuggling side-missions.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Speeder is part of the Beach Bum update, and is based on the 1962-1996 Riva Aquarama. The Speeder has very good top speed and acceleration, being able to compete with other boats in the same class like the Jetmax and Dinghy, and also being able to outrun Police Predators with relative ease.




GTA Vice City

GTA San Andreas

GTA Liberty City Stories

  • Docked at a pier south from Asuka Kasen's condo in Newport and the pier where the boat is spawned in GTA III.

GTA Vice City Stories

  • Can only be obtained during the smuggling and sometimes drugs side-missions.


GTA Online



  • The boat name could be a reference to a speeder which is a type of drug that gets you hyper. Possibly, both the Speeder and the Reefer are boats named after drugs.

GTA Vice City

GTA Vice City Stories

  • In a BradyGames guide for GTA Vice City Stories the possible beta name for the Speeder was the "Ambassador", as seen through one of the images in the guide.


  • In GTA V, the Speeder is made by Pegassi, the in-game equivalent to Lamborghini. This is a reference to the 1968 Riva Aquarama which belonged to Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, fitted with a pair of Lamborghini V12s.
  • In GTA V, the GPS appears to be GTA IV's Map (Liberty City) rather than Los Santos.
