White Bluff, TN
A fast fishing machine that will get your adrenaline pumping, the 2017 NITRO® Z20 is built to win. The basis of the Z20 is our NITRO® Vortex Technology™ (NVT™) hull—a design that uses a series of parabolas instead of traditional strakes, resulting in a hull that's faster, gives more lift while on plane and improves handling.
In the Z20, scorching speed and optimized fishability keep you ahead of the competition and at the top of the leaderboard. And it rides on a custom-matched, tandem-axle trailer with GALVASHIELD® Impact corrosion protection.
