The Jetski has a very high top speed, making it good for water stunts and police chases on the water. Like any boat, if the Jetski gets stuck on land, it needs to be manually pushed back into water. The Jetski is like an aquatic motorbike of sorts: if the player crashes at high speed, they are propelled off of the vehicle, and forward drive-by is possible.
This vehicle is also one of the boats wanted for export by the Civil Asset Forfeiture Impound. This vehicle is first seen in the mission "Say Cheese," where Victor Vance does stunts for a commercial. Attacking enemies during "The Colonel's Coke" are seen doing forward drive-bys on Jetskis. Later on, the Watersports courses are done by hopping on a Jetski at the InterGlobal Films studio in Prawn Island.
