Is it worth owning a yacht in Grand Theft Auto Online?

No. The yachts serve little to no purpose in Grand Theft Auto Online. Although the Galaxy Super Yacht is on discount after the latest GTA Online weekly update, it is still not worth the investment as you cannot make enough money in return. Moreover, you cannot manually drive the yacht, unlike other water vehicles.
