The Dinghy is a small boat which appears 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.

Description

Throughout its appearances, the Dinghy is primarily distinguished by its inflatable hull, but is further categorized into two designs:

  • In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories and GTA Chinatown Wars, the Dinghy is designed as a small inflatable boat with two rear-mounted motors, being one of the smallest boats in the games. Due to its size and lightweight construction, the boat is nimble and maneuverable, and has the potential to reach a moderately high top speed. Despite its construction, inflatable portions of the Dinghy do not deflate or burst when shot.
  • In GTA IV, the Dinghy resembles a military RHIB (Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boat), is available with any one of three attachment configurations (one of two two radar configurations or nothing at all), and can hold a maximum of four people. The boat inherits various traits of the original dinghy variant, although the boat is moderately heavier and has a more average top speed (42 mph/67 km/h).

Trivia

  • In GTA San Andreas, the default radio station in the Dinghy is CSR 103.9.
  • In GTA San Andreas, there's a visual effect glitch that has Carl go into an "invisible chair" sitting position for one second as he changes the radio station. This happens because there is no animation for changing the radio while standing, only while sitting. This also happens with Tropic.
  • In GTA IV, The Dinghy serves as an "antagonist" boat in most missions, where the Squalo serves as a "protagonist" boat.
  • In GTA IV, the default radio station in the Dinghy is Liberty Rock Radio 97.8.
