Nitro went all out for 2007 to create a powerful bassin’ platform designed for anglers who spend a serious amount of time on the water. The 21 footer features a totally infused hull, deck and transom for a strong, yet light, boat.
Rated for outboards up to 300 horsepower mounted on a 10-inch jackplate, the Z9 is definitely muscular. Likewise, the bow features a 24-volt, 70-pound thrust MotorGuide trolling motor.
Standard fishing equipment also includes a Lowrance LCX-25c sonar/GPS unit and two large Guardian aerated livewells with an oxygen-generation system.
Drop-in tackle bins are located beneath the aft deck, while two oversize rod boxes and a partner-rod feature hold all the rods you’ll need.
For fishing comfort, the bow deck offers anti-fatigue padding, while the restyled seating and built-in shock-absorption system for the helm and passenger seat provide a comfortable ride.
