The livewell system offers an aft 30 gallon Guardian livewell with digital timers, a 500 GPH livewell recirculation/pump-out system, a 500 GPH aerator/fill pump, and rotomolded with rounded corners. The standard single axle Nitro trailer is custom-matched for years of smooth on-road performance and confident loading and unloading. And there are many options to customize your Z-Series to your specific wants, take a look!


With any Nitro Z-Series bass boat, there is smart design and top quality construction such as the exclusive one-piece stringer system which is a solid fiberglass substructure in between the deck and hull that unitizes the boat. And transom knees are part of the stringer to form an unyielding foundation. The stringer, transom, deck and hull are chemically bonded and mechanically fastened together to become one solid structure for a lifetime of top performance and tourney-winning fishability. The Guardian livewells include a 360-degree baffle around the top edge that keeps the water from slushing and banging up the fish, rounded corners to promote natural motion, angled bottoms for positive draining and auto-fills, oxygen generators and powerful, reliable pumps. The Z-Core seating system have an all-composite rotomolded contoured frame to cradle the torso and and just enough flex to absorb punishing impacts on the water, plus Force Flex elastic suspension.

NITRO® builds high performance fiberglass fishing boats, tracing its roots to Texas in the 1960s, where the founders helped pioneer the original Pad V bass boats.


In 1989, the NITRO Boats brand became a part of the Bass Pro Shops® family and continues to draw upon the thinking and ideas of  leading tournament competitors, such as Kevin VanDam, Rick Clunn, Edwin Evers, and Ott DeFoe, just to name a few, to design, build, refine, and evolve our lineup of quality competitive fishing boats. NITRO boats continually become more formidable contenders with each passing year using feedback from hardcore fishing pros who rely on these products on the tournament trails, and from real-world NITRO owners.




Among the innovations introduced by NITRO over the years are the Rapid Planing System™ and NITRO Vortex Technology™ (NVT™) hull. And our Guardian™ livewells are widely considered to be the finest fish-keeping systems available.  


The designers, engineers, craftspeople, and sales and support teams at NITRO work tirelessly to ensure that your fiberglass bass or walleye fishing boat exceeds your expectations in performance, fishability, and reliability for years to come.
