The Rio is a catamaran sailboat in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description

In comparison to the Marquis, the Rio is comparably shorter in height and length, but shares the Marquis' trait of an additional living space directly under the mast. The Rio also features a canopy over the boat's controls, and includes a back-mounted fan which purpose is unspecified, possibly for reading of wind speed/direction. Like the Marquis, the Rio also features a bermuda rig, but does not utilize it for propulsion (relying instead on its on-board motor) and lacks a headsail.

The Rio's size, together with its dependence on a small motor, makes steering of the Rio difficult and contributes to its slow speed, similar to the Marquis' performance. These shortcomings are downplayed in the GTA Vice City Stories rendition, with better maneuverability.

The name of the boat may have been inspired by the music "Rio" by Duran Duran. The description for the Rio in the BradyGames Official Strategy Guide is "Oh, Rio, Rio... dance across the Rio Grande."
