Design

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. 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.

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

The Squalo, like any high-end speedboat, possess excellent speed and handling, second only to the Jetmax. Like any high performance boat, the Squalo is capable of turning in a dime when the throttle is applied. Nevertheless, misconception of the boat's performance arises in a GTA Vice City mission, "The Fastest Boat", where Ricardo Diaz claims a Squalo which he intends to have stolen is the "fastest boat". Playtests and examination of internal files reveal the Jetmax is faster.

Trivia

  • In GTA IV, the player can cause the spoiler of a Squalo, if there is one, to detach as a result of a violent crash.
