I have been in contact with osprey and liverpool power boats.
Just to be clear: "Vipermax" and "1994/1995" are mutually exclusive. The Vipermax was not designed until at least 2000. I suspect this means you have a Viper, as if the console has been positively identified then the 1994/5 build time seems more likely.
Liverpool Powerboats won't want anything to do with it and neither will Northern Diver I'm afraid. The best you can do if you really want a manufacturers plate is to simply ask Mike to make one for you.
As I have already said, most Ospreys built even today are not fitted with the plate, and since the plate did not exist or at least had not been brought into legislation by 1994/5 there almost certainly never was one, unless Osprey put a little builders plaque but that is irrelevant for paperwork purposes.
