NITRO® builds high performance fiberglass fishing boats, tracing its roots to Texas in the 1960s, where the founders helped pioneer the original Pad V bass boats.
In 1989, the NITRO Boats brand became a part of the Bass Pro Shops® family and continues to draw upon the thinking and ideas of leading tournament competitors, such as Kevin VanDam, Rick Clunn, Edwin Evers, and Ott DeFoe, just to name a few, to design, build, refine, and evolve our lineup of quality competitive fishing boats. NITRO boats continually become more formidable contenders with each passing year using feedback from hardcore fishing pros who rely on these products on the tournament trails, and from real-world NITRO owners.
Among the innovations introduced by NITRO over the years are the Rapid Planing System™ and NITRO Vortex Technology™ (NVT™) hull. And our Guardian™ livewells are widely considered to be the finest fish-keeping systems available.
The designers, engineers, craftspeople, and sales and support teams at NITRO work tirelessly to ensure that your fiberglass bass or walleye fishing boat exceeds your expectations in performance, fishability, and reliability for years to come.
