Jetmax is a high-speed cigarette powerboat, manufactured by a completely fictional in-game Japanese vehicle company Shitzu.
Shitzu Jetmax appeared in each part of the Grand Theft Auto games series, starting with GTA: Vice City and it has became a symbol of a on-water races in the GTA universe. As Jetmax was transferred from one part of the series to another it suffered completely no changes, except for a painting, which was different in each new GTA, also boat's manufacturer was changed in the fifth part from Italian Grotti (GTA 4) to already mentioned Japanese Shitzu. In GTA 5 Jetmax's painting looks rather softly, white colour prevails and there is a few dark-blue lines on the top of a boat.
Shitzu Jetmax is the fastest boat in Grand Theft Auto 5. It has a mass of just 2000 kilograms (for a comparison - an inflatable boat Nagasaki Dinghy has exactly the same mass), so Jetmax has absolutely no problem in achieving a speed of 135 kilometres per hour, which makes it ultimately the fastest water craft in the game. But the biggest strength of Jetmax is it acceleration - is is far superior to any other of it' sea brethren. Such acceleration makes Jetmax capable of achieving top speeds within a blink of time. Among cons of a bout we would like to point out it's instability - be careful when performing jerky turns, as you the boat may overturn and you may find yourself laying in a hospital, or in a morgue (if your body won't get eaten by sharks, of course, otherwise your future won't be as bright). You can buy this piece of luxury for $300000 on docktease.com.
Shitzu Jetmax is a completely made-up boat and it is hard to say if it actually has any prototypes, but there are some similarities between it and Fountain 38 Lightning, Formula Fastech 312.
