The Marquis is a sailboat that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Design

The Marquis is a long single-hull sailboat with a Bermuda rig and propulsion of the motor in the rear, features that have not changed much since its introduction. Despite its design, the ship's sails are of no practical use as they are down and completely rolled up.

While the Marquis in pre-GTA IV games have long been depicted as a leisure sailboat, the GTA IV rendition of the Marquis sports a more luxurious design with a windowed cabin. In comparison to the former's blocky design, GTA IV rendition is also sleeker and modernized.

Performance

While the Marquis posses a streamlined hull and is common in various locations of the games, the boat is significantly slow with poor speed and acceleration (due to its underwhelming motor) and has stiff controls, making it one of the worst watercraft to commandeer in all its appearances.

Locations

GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
GTA Vice City Stories
GTA IV
  • Commonly spawns along the West River, although the ship does rarely appear in other waterways in the city.
  • Docked near Beaverhead Avenue, Leftwood, Alderney.
  • A target for one of The Fixer's Assassinations is standing on a Marquis with bodyguards. If the player kills the target without destroying the boat, he/she can take the boat

Trivia

  • In GTA Vice City, the rear marking of the boat reads "Marquis 69, Vice City".
  • In GTA San Andreas, the default radio station is K-DST.
  • A disassembled Marquis based on the GTA IV rendition and loaded on a trailer is featured in the second trailer for GTA V.
