The Berenko-class, also known as gondola speeders, were a type of aquatic vehicle used in the Lake Country region of the planet Naboo. Paddy Accu, the caretaker of the Varykino island retreat, used a yellow gondola speeder to transport senator Padmé Amidala and Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker to Varykino shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
A Berenko-class gondola speeder first appeared in the novelization of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones by R. A. Salvatore in 2002, shortly before the film itself was released. The vehicle's name was confirmed to be canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars, which was released in 2015.
