THE Yacht Guide

In GTA 5 Online, luxury yachts are a great way to show off and offer a safe haven for players. They come with a heli, watercraft, spawn point, anti-griefer measures, and access to exclusive missions. There are three types of yachts, and aesthetic upgrades can be added. However, it's a rubbish investment as it takes hours of grinding to break even.

Mastering Yachts in GTA Online – The Ultimate Guide

Are you a fan of Grand Theft Auto V and its online version? If so, you might want to consider investing in a luxury yacht! In this guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about owning and mastering yachts in GTA Online.

Why Own a Yacht?

First things first, why should you own a yacht in GTA Online? There are several reasons to invest in this luxurious vessel. Firstly, depending on your budget, your yacht might come with a helicopter, which can be called for a small cost. It also comes with some watercraft, such as jet skis and power boats. Additionally, there’s a bedroom for you to spawn in, which comes in handy if you have businesses near the southwestern coast or you want quicker access to the Los Santos airport. Another excellent benefit of owning a yacht is that it comes with an anti-griefer defense system, which gives you a safe haven. It also provides access to exclusive missions, which are designed for beginners and can be done solo. And of course, owning a yacht is a great way to show off your wealth and success in the game.

Which Yacht Should You Choose?

In GTA Online, there are three types of yachts to choose from: The Orion, The Pisces, and The Aquarius. The Orion is the cheapest at 6 million, the Pisces costs 7 million, and the Aquarius is the most expensive at 8 million. The Pisces, in our opinion, is the best deal as it comes with better watercraft and a better helicopter than the Orion. However, if you are a fan of jet skis and don’t mind the extra cost, The Aquarius is the way to go. Once you have decided which yacht to buy, you can customize it with aesthetic upgrades such as gold fittings, lighting, and a paint job. You can also choose your own flag and name for the yacht.

How to Buy a Yacht in GTA Online

To buy a yacht in GTA Online, you need to open your phone, head to the internet, then to vehicles and transportation. Click the “Galaxy Super Yacht” banner, pick your yacht, and set your options. Then click “Buy Now,” and you will immediately receive a notification and a new contact. Once you get the notification, head back out to the free roam lobby to get another notification about your chopper (if your yacht comes with one).

What Can You Do With Your Yacht?

Besides having a helicopter, watercraft, and a bedroom, there are other things you can do with your yacht. For example, you can move the yacht around the coastline, though you can’t actually drive the yacht itself sadly. Additionally, you can call in your helicopter by going to contacts, toggling down to the captain, and requesting a helicopter. The yacht also comes with some defenses, but keep in mind that if someone swims to your yacht, the defense system won’t target them. Finally, you can start yacht missions, which can be a great way to earn money.

Yacht Missions

Yacht missions are missions that you can start once you have the yacht. There are six missions in total, and they can take between eight and twenty minutes each to complete. Additionally, the missions can typically pay between twenty and thirty thousand dollars each. However, keep in mind that it can take a while to break even, as you need to complete a minimum of 200 missions to break even with the cheapest yacht.


Owning a yacht in GTA Online can be a great way to show off your wealth and success in the game. However, keep in mind that it can be a long and expensive process to get your money back from the investment. With this guide, we hope you have a better understanding of what you can do with your yacht and how to own and master it in GTA Online. Happy gaming!

hi in this video we’re going through the
luxury yacht in gta 5 online
hi and welcome back my name’s dan and
i’m an old grumpy gamer grand theft auto
is a truly massive game between gta 5
and the concert updates from rockstar
for gta online there’s no shortage of
new content and interesting things to do
join me then as we look at the luxury
yachts in gta 5 online before we dive in
if you’re new to the channel we do
how-to guides news and giveaways so
consider subscribing and ring the bell
to stop today so first things first why
on earth would you want a yacht well
there’s a few core reasons the luxury
heli so depending on your budget your
new yacht might come with a helicopter
which can be called for a small cost
they have a very specific spawn point so
they’re not quite as convenient as a
sparrow or the oppressor but they’re
still very nice some watercraft so
that’s a few jet skis and a lovely power
boat all of which are stationed off the
back of the yacht an additional spawn
point so unsurprisingly the yachts have
a bedroom so you can spawn in and this
can be handy if you have businesses near
the southwestern coast or you want
quicker access to the los santos airport
anti-griefer measures so the yacht comes
with a neat defense system that gives
you a safe haven it has a couple of
caveats but it’s a great way to deal
with vehicle-based idiots access to
exclusive missions the yacht gives you
access to facility specific missions
they’re designed for noobs and can be
done completely solo and of course it’s
a hell of a flex i mean it’s a nice
facility to have and one of the most
expensive things you can buy in the game
so it is a cracking way to show off
right we have three different options to
choose from with the yachts starting
with the orion at 6 million which is a
210 footer and it comes with a single
helipad a small two-person canopy
runabout and a jet ski the pisces at
seven million dollars also a 210 footer
but this one comes with two helipads a
swift deluxe helicopter the big car
speeder which is arguably the best boat
in the game a dinghy and two jet skis
and a hot tub and finally the aquarius
at eight million even now this is the
same size and birth as the other yachts
210 feet and has two helipads a hot tub
and a dinghy the same as the pisces but
comes with the super volito carbon and
the toro as well as four jet skis so
i’ve gone for the aquarius here but only
because it was on super special if i was
paying full price the pisces at seven
million dollars is a better buy in my
opinion the speedboat and their
helicopter that come with the pisces are
much better and really how often are you
using four jet skis at the same damn
time next up is the trim chrome is
included but you can step it up with
gold fittings for an additional seven
hundred and fifty 000 lighting and color
scheme next now again there is a free
option but you can pick from the eight
available which will set you back
anywhere up to 600 grand sticking with
the aesthetics the paint job is next
starting with the white paint job and
grey trim included and with 12 options
ranging in price up to 650 000 and the
final option is your flag and yacht name
both of which are included in the
original price so your minimum out of
pocket on this one is six million which
gets you the base model yet and nothing
else if you have around 8 million to
spend though the pisces with a few
aesthetic upgrades would be the go right
once you’ve decided on your model find
somewhere safe open your phone and head
to the internet then to vehicles and
transport docts and click the galaxy
super yacht banner pick your yacht and
set your options click buy now and you
will immediately receive a notification
and a new contact close out of the
internet by hitting the x up the top
right and you’ll see a new notification
with the yacht icon top left as well as
a new message from the captain of your
new vessel after that you can head back
out to the free roam lobby and you’ll
get yet another notification this time
about your chopper if your yacht comes
with one and i’ll cover how to call that
in in a bit right so once you’re ready
head over to your new yacht and take a
look around and after you’ve had a bit
of an explore head to the helmets where
the captain hangs out and into the
yellow marker to start yacht missions
there are six missions in total and
depending on your skill with a chopper a
boat and a firearm they’ll take you
between eight and twenty minutes each to
complete and typically pay between
twenty and thirty thousand dollars each
which means an absolute minimum of 200
missions or 27 hours to break even if
you go for the absolute cheapest option
and get the maximum payout every time
honestly though it’ll be more like 300
missions and 75 hours of grinding at
maximum difficulty to get your money
back so great flex rubbish investment
you do get this sweet captain’s outfit
though which is nice oh and there’s a
few additional things you can do with
the yacht which can come in handy too
firstly if you’ve gone for the pisces or
aquarius you can call in your helicopter
and to do this open your phone and go to
contacts toggle down to the captain and
give him a call once he picks up select
request helicopter which will set you
back a thousand dollars now this is a
little old school so the chopper will
spawn in in one of a few dozen places
around the map which was great back in
the day but it is pretty inconvenient if
you’re used to a sparrow or a mark 2
oppressor but anyway once it’s spawned
in you’ll see a new chopper icon on the
map head on over and you’re good to go
while we’re on the captain’s phone you
may have also noticed a few other
options you can use this same menu to
call in your premium boat which will
again spawn somewhere up the coast oh
and you can also request a personal
vehicle or your next job too should you
feel so inclined the next thing you can
do is move the yacht around the
coastline now again this is a little old
school so you can’t actually drive the
damn thing sadly it’s not the kasaka but
you can have the yacht quick travel to
different locations in the lobby or be
it at a particularly ouchy cost of 25
grand a throw to do this head to the
helm on your yacht and stand next to the
captain to trigger a button prompt in
the top left of the screen click the
button noted and bring up the location
menu then you can cycle through the
locations until you’ve found the one
you’re after your defenses and
management is next now to access these
you can be anywhere on the yacht or
anywhere outside in the free roam map
head to the interaction menu that’s m on
your keyboard the double squares on your
xbox or swipe for your playstation
scroll down to services and galaxy super
yacht from there there’s a few things
you can do to skipping the defenses for
a moment we can set up who has access to
the boats jet skis and the chopper if
you have one we can also change who can
access the yacht itself and we can set
the type of clothing that people wear in
the hot tub if yacht has one finally
let’s scroll back up to defenses when
these are on and don’t forget to set
your exclusions but when these are on
any player in the free roam lobby in a
vehicle will be targeted by the defense
systems oh and this also takes care of
guided missiles from the casa too but
there’s a rub it’s only players in
vehicles if someone swims to yacht they
won’t be targeted and will be able to
board the vessel so it’s great for mark
to inject griefers but not so good for
people who are just running around being
a pain in the backside oh and one more
thing with the defenses when they’re on
no one can draw a weapon no one it’s
great because you can’t have a griefer
come in and shoot up the place but it
also means you can’t draw and shoot
anyone your own self and that’s about it
thanks for watching check out the video
at the top for another property and
business guide or the one down the
bottom for some more old grumpy gamer
goodness stay safe wash your hands and
we’ll see you in the next video
