More Control With Nitro Z20

More Control With Nitro Z20

The next time you are on the water, would you want to feel like you are dominating the canals? Do you want to feel like you have more control and power over your ability to go anywhere the fish may be?

The new Z20 by NITRO® is that kind of boat. It is designed to give you the confidence to put you on fish now! It is also the kind of boat that offers no apologies when it blows by another boat.

The NITRO Elite Pro Team in the USA have provided input for the boat’s design. The Z20 measures in at 20 feet, 2 inches long, and features an enormous fishing platform with more than enough storage for all your fishing rods and tackle.

But, the most innovative feature on the Z20 is its hull design.

The Z20 comes with the new NITRO Vortex TechnologyTM (NVTTM) hull—a design that relies on a series of parabolas instead of traditional strakes. This produces faster speeds, more lift on the plane, and improved turning.

Just because it is fast, does not mean we did not take comfort into account. The Z20’s NVT technology delivers an incredibly smooth, comfortable ride from spot to spot, so you will not feel beat up at the end of the day. And if you have more energy to fish throughout the day, you will catch more fish, and want to spend more time in your boat.

“Dollar for dollar, there is no other fibreglass bass boat in the 20-foot range that can compete with the Z20,” says Rick Emmitt, Tracker Marine Group marketing manager in charge of the NITRO Elite Team. “When you see this boat in person, you’ll be amazed by the quality we’ve put into it.

In addition to all the great standards found onboard the Z20, the Z-PRO package comes factory-rigged with a powerful Minn Kota® Fortrex® 112-pound thrust, 36- volt trolling motor to make moving the boat effortless. You also get a Lowrance® Touch fishfinders with StructureScan® to help you find the fish.


Every NITRO® performance fiberglass fishing boat is built with the utmost care and a dedication to quality that you can see in the fit and finish, feel in the smooth ride and count on for a lifetime. Thanks to the skill and experience of our master team of fiberglass craftspeople, care is taken at every step in the process to ensure the finest, longest-lasting boat at the best price. These fast, comfortable and highly-fishable boats are designed to help you be the best angler you can be, whether you’re competing in an Elite tournament or just relaxing over a weekend at the lake.


From the moment a new NITRO boat model or feature enhancement is brought to light, every step taken by our designers and engineers is carefully planned to ensure the resulting product performs to exceed expectation. NITRO quality is easy to see when you look at a series model up close – from tight tolerances, carpeted compartment interiors, to deep, rich colors of our gelcoat that define the smooth and durable curves of the NVT hull. NITRO boats are manufactured efficiently, with minimal waste producing a quality boat and peace of mind for our customers.


Hand-laid fiberglass hulls are built with engineered, woven fiberglass fabric for strength and chopped fiberglass strand for puncture resistance, and
then a custom-molded liner is bonded to the hull to provide longitudinal and transverse supports to the running surface. Extra-thick, molded knee supports reinforce the transom to hold outboards and shallow-water anchors.
