The Speeder name was originally adopted for a sports car in the original Grand Theft Auto, but was to be later associated with a speed boat in games after GTA III. To date, the Speeder has appeared in the following games:
- Grand Theft Auto III
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
- Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
GTA III — GTA Chinatown Wars
Between GTA III — GTA Chinatown Wars, the Speeder is a speed boat, appearing in every game in the sequence except GTA Advance and GTA IV.
Designed as a lean watercraft, the Speeder is a good boat in terms of handling and speed, being the fastest boat in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the third fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and the fourth fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
It is one of the easiest boats to obtain, and can be found at many docks and ports throughout the cities. In GTA Vice City Stories, this boat is very rare and can only be obtained during the smuggling side-missions.
