Despite its size and weight, the Tropic in GTA Vice City has an exceptional top speed, and it is capable of sustaining 130 km/h (81 mph) in calm waters and 100-110 km/h (62-69 mph) in choppy waters, although its ability to turn at high speeds is poor. In GTA Vice City Stories, however, is generally one of the slowest of all boats (in a similar level as the [[Marquis]] and [[Rio]]) due to its size and weight.

The ''GTA San Andreas'' rendition is remarkably fast, comparable to a [[Squalo]]. Due to the two large [[wp:Water Jet|Waterjet]] engines, the boat is able to navigate across shallow waters.

"A lightweight, classic-design cruiser speedboat that's been built to last. Comes with an elegant deck canopy perfect for shading the sun while sharing your wife."
DockTease description.

The Tropic is a motor yacht and speedboat 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.

"Deep sea boat. Excellent seafaring craft. Believed to be used to aid disposal."
— GTA Vice City Website.

Each iterations of the Tropic are essentially flybridge motor yachts or cabin cruisers, evidently featuring living space on the lower compartment of the boat and a partially covered bridge on top; in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, a small kitchen is visible from the door in the back, while in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the front windows are semi-transparent, allowing the player to see a small living area with red curtains, tables and two sofas. The Tropic in GTA Vice City Stories, however, is sharply reduced in height, with its top chopped and featuring an open flybridge.

It is also one of the boats wanted by the Civil Asset Forfeiture Impound for export in GTA Vice City Stories.

HD Universe Edit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Tropic is still a cabin cruiser, but has a low-profile cabin housed in its bulky hull and has moderate speed. The boat, however, is distinguishable from other speedboats by its accessories. For any Tropics with an optional spoiler, retractable roofs (front, back, or both) or a glass fairing (front only) may be further attached on the spoiler itself. As the boat is reduced to a size smaller than even the Jetmax or Squalo, the title of largest boat now belongs to the Tug Boat, which is easily twice the size of the pre-GTA IV Tropic.

The Tropic returns to Grand Theft Auto V. It now has many more variations of colour schemes, unlike the GTA IV rendition. It also features more variations of spoilers, booms and canopies, and an initially updated paintjob design.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, a special version of the Tropic with a different livery appears when purchasing the Orion Yacht in Grand Theft Auto Online, added as part of the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals update for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It spawns in the colors of the yacht purchased - altering the color of the yacht will consequently alter the color of the boat and any other boats featured with the yacht.

Performance Edit

3D UniverseEdit

Despite its size and weight, the Tropic in GTA Vice City has an exceptional top speed, and it is capable of sustaining 130 km/h (81 mph)[citation/verification needed] in calm waters and 100-110 km/h (62-69 mph)[citation/verification needed] in choppy waters, although its ability to turn at high speeds is poor. In GTA Vice City Stories, however, it is generally one of the slowest of all boats (in a similar level as the Marquis and Rio) due to its size and weight.

The GTA San Andreas rendition is remarkably fast, comparable to a Squalo. Due to the two large Waterjet engines, the boat is able to navigate across shallow waters. It is a great boat for transporting large gangs, and great for just cruising around in the waters of San Andreas, but the only disadvantage is its bad turning.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The GTA IV rendition features greatly improved performance, but remains as a lower-end speedboat. However, it is the third-fastest boat, having a similar speed as the game's Dinghy.
