Overview

Description

The NITRO® Z18 is America's best-selling fiberglass bass boat because it balances power and fishability in a ready-to-win package. It's is built around our revolutionary NITRO® VORTEX TECHNOLOGY™ (NVT™) hull with RAPID PLANING SYSTEM™, giving you a smooth, soft and dry ride along with a brisk holeshot and precise handling when turning and at the top end.



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 standard and over 100 fishfinder options available to replace or complement the standard Lowrance® unit, it's truly a bass boat for everyone.
