Viper F4
(step-deck for outboards,
shallow water low draft boat )

Explore the Backwaters

This is how it all started with Excel; by building the toughest and simply the best-built duck boat made. Heavy-duty gunwhales can take a beating from timber. The (optional) KIK-UP™ transom’s dual heavy-duty gas shocks help absorb impact subjected to your lower unit in surprise encounters with submerged stumps. Tank-like bracing throughout doesn’t make this boat a lightweight, but it will outlast any other boat made. The step deck ( Excel was the 1 st to offer this feature) takes the leg-work out of getting in and out of your boat. Excel exclusive OPTIFADE™ camo will disappear in any timber hole or marsh.

F4 Viper Reverse Chine Step Deck Hull

The Viper F4 with reverse chine hull, commonly used on high-end bass boats gets on step quickly, rides smoothly and turns like it is running on train tracks.

Key Feature - Unique Kik Up Assembly

image

Most sportsman don't know they can run an outboard in shallow clear water with our exclusive optional Kik Up assembly. It works by mounting the outboard to this special transom assembly that allows the slow moving boat to tip up when it hits a log, stump or other underwater object. The double Monroe shock assembly dampens the up and downward movement making it seem effortless to run flooded timber, or stumps in your favorite crappie or bass hole. The Kik Up was invented by and exclusive to Excel.

Key Feature - Control Panel

The standard feature control panel is conveniently located near the driver for easy access to the two interior panel lights switch, bilge, running lights, bow spot light option switch etc. On models with a built-in fuel tank, the fuel gauge is also located near the driver. All switches have built-in breakers and the panel is recessed to protect the switches.

Key Feature - LED Headlight Option

The twin LED 5800 lumen headlight guides you through the darkest marshes or timber. The lights can be adjusted upwards or downwards as needed for your boat design, and the lights rotate around for backing the boat. Turn the light to the side to put out your decoys.

 

The headlight switch is located on the driver control panel.

Key Feature - Water Resistant Gun Box

All our water resistant storage and gun boxes have a raised edge on top of the box that fits into the cover. This feature prevents normal rainfall and water splashes from getting into the sealed box below. However, be careful at carwashes where high pressure spray can seep up and over the water resistant seal.

 

This feature is a premium standard feature on all Excel brand boats.
