For the car in GTA San Andreas and GTA V, see Blade (car).

The Grotti Blade is a 2-seater speedboat featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC for Grand Theft Auto IV.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Blade is depicted as a speedboat not unlike the Smuggler, but is designed with a less streamlined body design and a shorter length, and is presumably built more for comfort; in addition, the boat may come with an optional top-mounted wakeboard tower that sweeps towards the front.

The boat is predominately painted in a primary color, while secondary color stripes are found along the sides. A tertiary color affects the hull as well as trimmings around the top and sides of the bodywork.

The boat's seagoing performance is moderately good, ranking somewhere similar to the Smuggler but stacking above the Floater. Likewise, the boat's maneuverability is affected, for better of worse, by its moderately heavy weight, being more controllable than a Smuggler but less so than the smaller Floater.

  • A typo in the last color set for the Blade prevents it from spawning in this color naturally. The color set is incorrectly listed as 89.113,113,27, , wherein the period symbol should be a comma for the code to work. Correcting this mistake will allow it to spawn in this color set.
