Nitro Z-6

Nimble performance meets tournament features!

The NITRO® Z-6 is much more than an "entry-level" fiberglass bass boat. In fact, it has much more in common with its larger siblings in the Z-Series than it does with other boats in its size class, including great holeshots and incredible overall performance. And don’t forget how it’s built for serious local tournament bass fishing (or even just a friendly outing with a buddy) with plenty of top-tier fishing features and amenities throughout, as well as sizable casting decks fore and aft.

The Z-6 just fits all of this into a nimble, easy-to-tow performance package geared toward everyday anglers. And all at an industry-low price!
