"A sleek, sexy 4-seater, this is the reason you never see an ugly woman on a speedboat."
DockTease description.

The Squalo (spelt Squallo in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories) is a go-fast boat in the Grand Theft Auto series 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 V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Grotti in GTA IV, and Shitzu in GTA V.

Description

Throughout its appearances, the Squalo is easily recognizable as one of the speedboats featured in the series. Color variations may also vary between games. In its original appearance in GTA Vice City, the boat comes with a combination of a constant white with a variable bright color, while later renditions feature more flexible color choices.

Design

3D Universe

The Squalo is depicted with a long sleek hull and, in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, are specifically given "Squalo II" and "Squalo III" names, respectively, suggesting a series of Squalos were released over time.

The Squalo II is based on the Chris-Craft Stinger 390x, which was a vehicle used in Miami Vice. The Squalo is initially given a distinctive spoiler mounted over the occupants' seats in GTA Vice City, but was not present in the GTA San Andreas rendition. The GTA Vice City Stories, however, restores the spoiler on the back.

HD Universe

The GTA IV rendition of the Squalo, on the other hand, assumes a more curved and modern design, but is comparably shorter than its earlier counterparts. The Squalo will spawn either with or without a spoiler, similar to the 3D Universe renditions.

The Squalo is difficult to obtain, as the player is required to purchase a property, complete a set of missions, or complete Boat School, as GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas has demonstrated.

Performance

3D Universe

The Squalo, like any high-end speedboat, possesses excellent speed and is the "fastest boat" as mentioned in one of Diaz's missions in GTA Vice City. Like any high-performance boat, the Squalo is capable of turning on a dime when the throttle is applied.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Squalo performs as well as in the 3D Universe, having a good speed and good acceleration. While it is not as fast as the Jetmax or the Smuggler, the Squalo possesses a rather impressive handling, given its shorter design.

  • Found docked just north of Colony Island.
  • Commonly found on the waterways of Liberty City.
  • Occasionally spawns in the waters near the beach in Westdyke, Alderney (normally different boats spawn there).

Trivia

General

  • Squalo is Italian for "shark".

3D Universe

  • If you look closely to the concept artwork of the Squalo from GTA Vice City, you may notice that Sonny Forelli is standing in it.
  • In GTA San Andreas, on the back side of the Squalo, the phrase "San Andreas Co. 90210" is written, which might be reference to the zip code of Beverly Hills, California.

HD Universe

  • In GTA IV and GTA V, the player can cause the spoiler of a Squalo, if there is one, to detach as a result of a violent crash.
  • In GTA V, it can spawn with an orange and white "creamsicle" paint job, this is a reference to the 1980s TV show Miami Vice, more specifically the intro featuring a similar boat.
  • In GTA V, the Squalo shares the engine sound with the Turismo RFeltzer and Carbonizzare.
  • A unique uncontrollable version is suspended from a small purpose-built crane at the end of the pier at Chumash. The crane looks like the ones that hold lifeboats on large ships.
