Viper Hovercraft

Viper 5 Hovercraft are practical 5 person hovercraft which are ideal for fishing, farming, industrial and recreational use.

Viper 5 Hovercraft are manufactured to impeccable standards, offering outstanding performance and reliability. The Viper 5 is a light, simple, robust design, making it ideal for customers with high expectations, but with cost in mind.

The Viper 5, like all our hovercraft retains a beautiful finish, with well layout 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 or large chop.

The Viper 5 is manufactured using the best materials and engine. The hull is light just by design and incredibly strong, by taking advantage of high end fibreglass fabrics, resins and fabrication techniques.

The Viper 5 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. Easy passage to all interior deck areas, gives this design the edge over all competitors.

The Viper 5 Hovercraft is powered by a 939cc, low revving, three cylinder, 84hp two-stroke air cooled engine. This engine has high torque, a flat even power curve, which offers excellent fuel economy with low noise.
