Thanks. Before i submitted this post i used the search but didnt fond what i was looking for. Thanks you to the ones that replied with an actual answer.
What were you looking for? Haha.
I have two. I have an older boat and I have a brand new one. The older one is a 640 with a Mercury 75. The new one is a Z20 with a 250 xs. The old one is old....and pretty reliable. It's slow, under powered, bad in wind, waves, anything but calm. The new one is fast, really fast, rides pretty good, looks great.
Both have Mercury motors, minn Kota tm, humminbird electonics. The latches on my old one work fine. The gel coat still looks new. The old one is 18 years old. Looks better than most 5-6yrnold boats. My new one looks like a billboard. Lol the old one has no storage, the new one has "better" storage.
I have had a few other Nitros. Most have been great. One was a POS. not badly designed, poorly built.
Have been in a few z8's and z9's. All are great boats. Like said above...cheaper carpet, cheaper materials=cheaper price. I catch the same number and quality of fish from a Nitro as I am sure I would from a Skeeter or Ranger or whatever.
If your rich....buy a Ranger
If your not....buy a Nitro
Both will get around fine. Both will have an issue since God didn't make them. They all use the same brands (mostly) of stuff bolted to the hull.
Resale is average.
