Viper Hovercraft

The Viper 4 is a light, simple, robust design, making it ideal for customers with high expectations and low cost in mind.

The Viper 4 has a beautiful finish with well laid out features that provide comfort and safety. It is simply a joy to fly without the need to for full power or struggling in high winds and large chop.

The Viper 4 is manufactured using the best materials and engine available. The hull is light and incredibly strong by taking advantage of high end fiberglass fabrics, resins and fabrication techniques.
The Viper 4 Hovercraft is a stable floating platform for fishing, diving and retrieving. Our positive buoyancy system ensures a unsinkable Hovercraft, even if it is completely swamped. It is a practical design with easy passage to all interior and deck areas

The Viper 4 is powered by a 625cc, low revving, two cylinder, 55hp two-stroke air cooled engine. This engine has high torque, a flat even power curve, which offers excellent fuel economy and low noise.
