2024 Nitro Z18

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 as comfortable as possible. With a Minn Kota® trolling motor and Lowrance® fishfinder, it’s truly a bass boat for everyone.
