"The fastest boat" from Grand Theft Auto Vice City complete with Tommy Vercetti Minifigure. It even has secret compartments for "fishing gear."
About this creation
Dry-dock (how it was built):
I have been planning on building this boat for a long time. From the first time I played GTA Vice City I considered it the coolest boat I had ever seen. I originally thought about just using a stock LEGO boat bottom, but realized that I would have to put stickers on it to get the color I wanted, and none of them were the right shape ether. I’m still very surprised that I found all the parts I needed (I didn’t have to order any!) as well as the fact that I built the whole thing in less than 7 hours. The one part I did have to order stuff for was the Minifig, I actully built Tommy Vercetti weeks before I started the boat.

Special thanks to my friend Callan for coming up with the spoiler design!

About the boat:
The Squalo II (just called Squalo in the game, although it says II on the side) was first introduced in the Vice City mission “The Fastest Boat.” Latter it becomes available to the player by buying the boatyard and completing the mission “Checkpoint Charley.”
I tried to be very accurate to the look of the boat in the game, and it came out very well. It has two powerful engines that can outrun anything. That, along with a very light plastic (what else would LEGO be?) hull allow it to basically skim right along the top of the water.

Pictures:


”Tommy Vercetti, remember the name!”
I’m pretty happy with how the Minifig came out. Origonally I used an Indiana Jones head but soon realized that he looked much better with a yellow tan. The shirt isn’t quite the right color, but it is the closest I could find in LEGO. The hair though is perfect!
























Storage Compartments:
The Squalo II also features secret compartments for your “fishing gear.”
The suitcases Tommy is unloading contain special bait that is flower based…

Quoting Alex Sonny I'm a big Vice City fan and I love this boat along with the minifig! It's an accurate reminder of the greatest game ever (right after San Andreas, of course ;)
I loved the 80's atmosphere of Vice City, but the actual gameplay was a bit lacking. I really don't like auto lock-on so the shooting wasn't very fun. San Andreas was awesome though, I 100% the game without ever using the auto-lock (just manual aim). SA also has a huge selection of vehicles. Thanks for the comment!

super yacht! I loved it in gta, and I love it now, lol, I m thinking the same, gta is my best reason to buy a playstation, I ll wait until it drops a little more, and that gta becomes easily acceseable, it was worth it for vice city on the play 2, I m sure it will be the same now.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . I remember this one - spot on. Cool build. Really like the main photo. Hoping to receive my copy of GTA V this weekend.
Wish I could get GTA V, or even IV for that matter. I've been holding out until the PS3 hits $150, which hasn't happened yet. It is really hard, but in the long run I'm happier spending that money I save on LEGO. Thanks for the comment!

Quoting Starscream Soundwave I actually recognised this straight away, not sure if that's a good or bad thing! I like the Tommy Vercetti minifig too, you got the look right. All in all excellent build of a cool boat from a classic game!
Depends, did you recognize it because of how good a job I did or because you played the game too much? San Andreas was the one I played too much (mainly for the level and airplanes) but this is my favorite vehicle in any GTA.
