Overview

 

Description

Are you ready for some walleye? Or maybe some fast-paced family cruises and ski outings?

Then check out the all NEW NITRO ZV 18. A slightly downsized version of our lauded ZV 21, this master of the big northern waters was created with input from the world's leading walleye anglers—and with an eye toward family boating as well.

The aggressive Deep V hull slices through the chop on big lakes with smooth agility, and its wide 8’ 6” beam and substantial 18’11” length provides plenty of stability for five anglers or family members to move around the deck with confidence.

The interior is deep and family-friendly—and sports a raft of fishing features that will please the pike, muskie, or walleye angler, including a huge 26-gallon livewell and a 5.5-gallon bow baitwell. A patent-pending integrated port net holder keeps your all-important net close at hand, and ample storage throughout the boat holds more gear than you can imagine.

The new ZV-18 comes standard with a Mercury® 150HP XL FourStroke outboard—and will support up to a 200HP motor if you have a need for speed. The full-width fiberglass-encapsulated composite transom is also designed to support a kicker motor.

All things considered, the ZV 18 is the perfect walleye-hunting machine—and a great family fun boat too—especially when optioned with the ski-tow pylon and wraparound walk-thru windshield. 

  • Aggressive Deep V performance hull with lifting strakes designed to take on big water
  • Transverse & longitudinal fiberglass foam-filled stringer system
  • 2 lift-out, molded aft storage boxes that will accept tackle trays
  • 26-gal. (98.42 L) insulated aft Guardian™ livewell w/bait bucket & 5.5-gal. (20.82 L) insulated bow baitwell w/removable bucket
  • 3-level center rod locker w/organizers for rods up to 8' (2.44m)
  • Bow & aft lockable storage compartments
  • Dual consoles w/bracket-mounted Lowrance® Mark-5x Pro fishfinder, easy-to-read instrumentation, port glovebox & space to mount extra electronics
  • Gunnels designed to maximize interior space & fishing room
  • Minn Kota® PowerDrive 24V, 70-lb. thrust, 60" (1.52 m) composite shaft, foot-control trolling motor w/Universal Sonar 2
  • Custom factory-matched trailer w/No Touch Vortex hubs, swing-away tongue & GALVASHIELD® protection
  •  Makes a great family fish-&-ski when outfitted with the available ski-tow pylon & protective walk-thru windshield
