"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 in most 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.


3D Universe

This article or section contains insufficient information and is considered as a Stub. You can help GTA Wiki by expanding it as much as you can.

In all 3D Universe games the Speeder appears in, it takes a modern appearance. Designed as a low profile speedboat, its GTA III rendition seems to be directly concepted from Rockstar themselves, sharing no resemblence to any real-life boat.

HD Universe

Returning to Grand Theft Auto V with the Beach Bum Content Update, the Speeder is now styled as a classic speed boat, unlike that of the 3D Universe rendition. It is now closely based around the Coeur 290 Nighthawk and Cherubini Classic 20.


3D Universe

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.

HD Universe

In Grand Theft Auto V, 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.
