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.

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

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.
