The Coast Guard (also known as the Coastguard in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) is a boat that is available for the player to use in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
Presumably designed to serve emergency services, the Coast Guard is reasonably fast, and has the ability to make sharp turns easily. The boat has some wooden construction, particularly in GTA Vice City, and often has first aid kits and life jackets inside as well.
Despite being an emergency vehicle, there are no missions triggered after entering this boat, although it is used during part of the Beach Patrol mission on GTA Vice City Stories. It does, however, like other emergency vehicles, have a police radio. In GTA San Andreas, the Coast Guard is the boat used for the first two lessons in boat school, which can be accessed at Bayside Marina in Bayside, Tierra Robada.
