==Description==
The [[Grotti]]/[[Shitzu]] '''Squalo''' (spelt '''Squallo''' in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories) is a [[wp:go-fast boat|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]], and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].

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.

===3D Universe===
Throughout its appearances before GTA IV, 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 [[wp:Chris-Craft|Chris-Craft Stinger 390x]], which was a vehicle used in Miami Vice. GTA IV's 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 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. GTA Vice City Stories saw the return of the spoiler, while GTA IV features Squalos with or without a spoiler. 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.

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

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.

DescriptionEdit

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.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

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 UniverseEdit

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.
