VIPER 625 is a brand new conception of high-elevation tubes (inverted curve). Instead of the classic tubes, which are mostly low above the water and rise one-third to the bow of the Viper Series, the tubes rise as high as 1/3 of the hull length after the stern and are the highest around the console position, thus providing maximum protection to the driver. The feeling of driving is that you are in the boat and not on the boat like most other inflatables.
In addition to greater safety for passengers, high tubes contribute to less driving resistance and better performance and reduced fuel consumption. On the other hand, the stern end of the tube is in the water when the boat is in place, thus giving the classic stability expected of the dinghy. Tubes also touch the surface of the sea in the case of sharp turns and in a situation of very undulating sea, thus promoting stability and softening of G forces (vertical acceleration).
Tubes are made of ORCA Hypalon-Neoprene with 5 chambers and are available in all colors and patterns offered by ORCA. Tubes in a combination of several different colors are also available.
The diameter of the tube is 47 cm, which decreases to 37 cm on the bow. This gives a large interior space for the same outside width – 1.6 m is the record interior width for inflatables in the same class.
The Inflatable Hull is based on the proven Vento hull proven to date with excellent maritime capabilities and low fuel consumption. Hull shape is a highly variable deep V (warped V hull) with angles of 60 degrees on the bow, 30+ degrees in the middle and 21 degrees in the stern (by comparison, the famous deep V hulls have 22-24 degrees throughout most of the hull and are raised up to 40-50 degrees only on the bow while the hulls of most Italian inflatables end up 14-19 degrees in the stern which is not deep but the middle V hull).
A little in front of the center of gravity is a single staircase, and on the aft hull is the Delta keel. The combination of these two elements allows for a very light leveling (without bow lift), a more horizontal position of the boat when planing (better visibility – higher safety), less resistance and consequently lower consumption.
The Deck , with anti-slip surface, is self-marking in place (no need to glide to clear the deck from water) and is made to HRB and ISO standards (at maximum load 10 cm above sea level). Sea vents have a non-return system. In addition, a bilge pump is installed as standard in the hull.
The deck can be equipped at customer’s request for various purposes. Standard variant includes double bow storage, console with front seat (optional windshield height adjustment) and 1-2 storage inside, driver’s seat with front and rear seat open and storage area inside backrest and aft bench with large storage below ( extends into the space in front of the bench). The bench may have a fixed backrest or a movable one, which folds back towards the engine (the engine in this case must remain lowered in the sea), thus increasing the sunburst. The stern ends with two longitudinal platforms on the left and right side of the engine on which the ladder for descent into the sea (standard) and the support of the auxiliary engine (optional) are mounted.
Optionally, any type of accessory can be installed.
Hull and deck are made in 3D vacuum infusion – this means that all stiffeners and reinforcements are infused with the hull / deck formwork, thus making a unique piece that is incomparably firmer than when internal reinforcements (manually ) laminate subsequently. The subsequent manual lamination of the internal stiffeners usually has occasional blank spaces between the hull formwork and the reinforcement itself, which has no purpose and no real reinforcement at that point. With 3D infusion this does not happen.
Multi-axial glass fibers and minimally isophthalic resins are used as standard for hull and deck construction (extra vinyl or epoxy resins are guaranteed, which guarantee up to 50% higher strength and a lifetime guarantee of osmosis). The combination of 3D vacuum infusion and multiaxial fibers gives approximately 20% lighter and 30-40% stiffer hull than conventional construction (ordinary glass fibers and orthophthalic polyester resin) and much better resistance to osmosis.
The combination of a lighter (and stiffer) hull and shape with a single step and delta keel requires less power to the powerboat (possibly as early as 60 hp) and provides better performance and lower fuel consumption.
