If you want the tools to compete, the 2016 NITRO Z20 is a top-level tournament machine that's built to win. The basis of the Z20 is our new NITRO Vortex Technology (NVT) hull—a design that uses a series of parabolas instead of traditional strakes, resulting in a hull that's faster, gives more lift on plane and improves turning.
Other improvements include lower profile gunnels to maximize deck space, an improved, heavily-insulated cooler and room at the bow and console for a 12" fishfinder. And it rides proudly on a custom-matched, tandem-axle trailer with GALVASHIELD corrosion protection, tongue step, boarding handle and swing-away tongue.
