Viper F4 Side and Center Console
Step-Deck Transom

One boat that does it all.

The field- proven Viper™ hull exhibits convenience, comfort and versatility. The Viper F4 has heavy-duty gunwales, extra bracing throughout, and a standardly equipped Excel exclusive KIK-UP™ transom outboard mount that kicks up on impact, provides piece-of- mind on runs through the flooded timber. The F4 original step deck makes climbing in and out of the boat a chinch. The Viper F4 Console is the ideal rig for hunters who fish as seriously as they hunt. Just look at this boat's layout, all the right stuff in the right places and elbow room to match.

Viper F4 Console

Viper F4 Console Rides High and Dry

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

Key Features - Full Feature Center Console


The convenient F4 console comes complete with fuel gauge, speedometer and tachometer. Switches control the nav and anchor light, bilge, and accessories. All switches have resetable breakers. A 12 volt plug makes charging accessories simple and easy.

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.

Water Resistant Storage


All our water resistant storage and gun boxes have a raised lip that fits into the box lid. 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.

Shallow Water Outboard Kik Up

Our exclusive Shall Water Outboard KiK Up allows you to mount an outboard motor on this model to run shallow water. The twin shock absorber swing-up-mount allows the outboard to Kik Up when you hit stumps and logs at slow idle speeds when running through timber and brushy areas for hunting or fishing. The mount also allows you to install the outboard higher for shallow water operation.
