The NITRO® Z18 is America’s best-selling fiberglass bass boat AND the official boat of Major League Fishing® because it balances power and fishability in a ready-to-win package. It’s built around our revolutionary NITRO® VORTEX TECHNOLOGY™ (NVT™) hull with the RAPID PLANING SYSTEM™ transom, giving you a smooth, dry ride, quick holeshot and precise handling.
The massive bow deck is laid out with one purpose—catching fish. And the NITRO-exclusive Z-CORE™ seating makes cruising across the lake in heavy chop a comfortable as possible. With a 24-volt Minn Kota® trolling motor and new Lowrance® HOOK Reveal 5C fishfinder, it’s truly a bass boat for everyone.
