Viper Hovercraft


Viper 5X Hovercraft is a high performance five person design which is ideal for fishing, farming, industrial and recreational use

The Viper 5X 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 5X 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 5X Hovercraft incorporates localized Kevlar reinforcement which provides additional strength and durability.
The Viper 5X 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 5X is powered by a 939cc, 100hp, inline 3 cylinder, water cooled two-stroke engine. This engine provides an increase to the power to weight over the Viper 5/5S series. This enables spirited acceleration, tighter turns and higher cruise speeds.
