NITRO Introduces All-New NITRO Z19

Officials from NITRO®, a performance fishing and sport boat brand, announced the arrival of the 2017 NITRO Z19, an all-new 200 horsepower-class performance bass fishing boat capable of speeds approaching 70 miles per hour. The Z19 was unveiled Friday, March 4 at the 2016 GEICO® Bassmaster Classic® competition in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

"Customers have been asking us to expand our popular NITRO Z Series lineup with a 19-foot boat, and we are excited to offer them an incredible new option," said Johnny Morris, founder of Tracker Marine Group and a former Bassmaster Classic competitor. "Incorporating many of the same features from our Z20 and Z21 models, the Z19 is a fantastic boat at an excellent price."

At 19 feet 4 inches long with a 94-inch beam, the Z19 features the same NITRO Vortex Technology™ hull as the Z18 and Z20. NITRO Vortex Technology is a revolutionary design that uses a series of parabolic curves instead of traditional strakes. This results in higher top end speed and lift and improved acceleration. The Z19 has a substantial fuel capacity of 50 gallons. The Z19 will be available in a Z-Pro Package option with popular tournament upgrades.

"The Z19 has exceptional overall performance combining a quick holeshot, smooth handling and a comfortable rough-water ride," said four-time Bassmaster Classic winner Kevin VanDam. "There is no doubt the Z19 is destined to become one of the most popular boats within the NITRO lineup."
