Description

Formidable fishing performance that your competitors will envy and fish will fear.

With speeds approaching 70 mph with the stock motor and a massive 20’1” length, the NITRO Z-8 is a ruthless and tireless fishing machine—and that’s why it shows up in major tournaments across the nation.

The 16° variable deadrise Mod V hull terminates in our legendary Rapid Planing System, which helps the Z-8 take off like an Olympic sprinter, and hop onto plane in an instant. The stepped hull also delivers an exceedingly smooth and dry ride, even at top speeds.

Huge storage areas hold everything you and your buddies need for a full day of tournament competition on the water.

New advanced features for 2015 include Veethree® multi-function gauges, console panel kit, and LED courtesy lights, plus room for 2 optional factory-mounted graphs at the console. Also new are Gem stainless steel latches and an integrated winch stand step with grab handle for easier boarding/deboarding while the boat is on the trailer. A removable port console option is available for quick set-up with a co-angler.

This powerhouse rides proudly on a custom-matched, tandem-axle trailer with GALVASHIELD® corrosion protection, tongue step, swing-away tongue and a no Touch Vortex hub lubrication system.
