Height of Vipermax on trailer

Sorry to be a nuisance chaps, I was just wondering if any of you Vipermax owners out there could give me a rough idea of the maximum height of the boat, those with the Searider console would be best, however anything greatly appreciated! Im looking for the maximum height from the floor to the highest point on the console!

Many thanks in advance!

Oliver

Are you asking the height of the Searider console over the deck?

No, the rough height from ground to top of console while it's sitting on the trailer. Need to book a ferry and don't have immediate access to allow a conventional measurement!

It will depend on how your trailer's set-up. Some boats sit a lot higher off the ground than others.

Does it make that much difference on cost? Height cut off's normally 2.6 m or 3 m on the ferry or very very tall lorry size

You're right cut-off is 2.6m but I heard ferries becoming tougher on excess charges (like Ryanair) if original disclosure is wrong.

Without an A-frame, you should be well under 2.6m. Mine is around 2.5m height with a tall A-frame fitted.
