Can someone please tell me what the facination Is with bass boats? Is it bc of the speed? Or what???
I LOVE boats! My current boat is a tracker 17ft deep v. I owned a bass boat, I recently went out on my friend's 2018 Nitro, and I just truly don't see the value of one. There is no room like a deep v, the seating is very limited, there is no protection, like the walls on a deep v and they sit so low I get water in my beer when we're moving fast. I'm not bashing on bass boats, I just really don't know why, or what it is, that everyone likes so much about bass boats. Can someone please explain?
- Cheers!

@Miller Murdaugh haha! I figured it had to do with speed. I still think the deep V's are more comfortable. I had a bass boat and drinking beer wasn't nearly as fun in it. Thanks for the reply.

hulkhuggett as a tournament angler, having a fast boat is very important, not only that but the storage that they have and the fishability of the boat really is designed for tournaments. Not only that but you look badass in a bass boat lol

Nitro has came along way in the last few years, I love the layout personally. And for the price can’t really go wrong.

Why is nitro just now making a quality boat?

...I would give my left testicle for this boat. All bass boats are close to the same these days. And yeah, the rangers are silly over priced. Of course theyre all over priced but rangers have always been the top priced. I love the fact that Nitro is keeping the prices down. And I love the fact that the number one Bass fisherman to ever live has used the Nitro boats exclusively. Kinda tells us all something...at least if you want to hear it.

James Brady they may be cheaper but thats because they are cheaply made. It will start to fall apart in a year.

If your a true bass fisherman you know nitro is at the low low end of the spectrum, built with cheap plastic parts, thin carpet, terrible seats and bad design.
alex korn
alex korn - 2 years ago
I had to replace my seats in my 2014 z8 3 times already. They use really cheap material for the boats.
Musical Gear
Musical Gear - 2 years ago
Yeah right, thats why the most legendary fisherman to ever live has used Nitro boats for 20 years. Oh, of course he couldnt use any other one and have a new one each year for free and get paid to use it...right. I love people who have this mentality...especially on tournament day. I know, right now, where there are two, 20+ year old Nitros that are still on the water 3-5 times a week. And still have the same engines, etc. But I wonder why anyone would buy such cheap garbage. Keep on paying for those labels pal, ....lolol

i forgot to ask do you sell nitro boats in South-Africa because i life in South-Africa and it wil cost me a lot of money to get it from USA to South-Africa so it wil be cheaper if you sell them here

I also am a pro bass fisherman and am also sponsered by NITRO and I fish FLW and bassmaster I fish right next to KVD and I will be honest with you guys I fished out of skeeters,Tritons and rangers but NITRO is by far a more superior boat than any of the others I have metioned. They really take the angeler into consideration when building these boats and every aspect of it. I really enjoy fishing from my NITRO Z21. And would recommend you go out and take a look at these quality boats you will not be dissapointed...

If it was still 1975 I would be fishing right beside you but this wonderful sport which was started by working class guys has become the rich mans game. I fish and have for 20+ years. I have won countless contests and tournaments but with the prices of equipment I stand no chance of competing in the top levels of the sport. I have the tackle, the reels, rods, etc. But I cant afford the boat I would need to compete. I have even offered half of my winnings just to use a boat during the tournaments. But I pray to God in Heaven that I get the chance to compete with the FLW tour guys soon. People trash talking about this boat have no concept. I would give a kidney for this boat, AND a testicle.

Yeah of course no other boat company would give the most legendary bass fisherman to ever live a boat. Moronic comment urbina. He could not only get a free boat every year from any bass boat builder but also get paid to use it. He uses Nitro, he has always used Nitro, because he likes nitro. He has had offers from all of those high dollar companies but he stuck with what he likes and the company who stood behind him for 20 years. Its called LOYALTY, HONOR, and INTEGRITY. Theres barely any difference in the bass boats of our modern time. Even the Bass Trackers are awesome these days.

you must be under a rock if you think toyota isnt quite there on their trucks. I have owned TONS of different trucks and toyota has been hands down the best of the best so far. I have owned all the majors brands and most in their diesel and gas offerings. Guess what I found myself back in a new gen tacoma. The tacos and tundras have been 2 of the US best selling trucks for years.

+zwinns What a shame to pull a boat like this with a Tundra, which is generally not considered a "real" truck....but hell, I'd drive a Tundra if they were my sponsor. I actually love toyota vans and cars, I just think they're not quite "there" with their trucks.
