Thinking about buying a z6. Anyone ever had one and what did y’all think about it?
Looking at the z6 because that’s what will fit in my garage.

Nice, solid boats if the price is right.

Only thing I’ve really heard is they take a long time to get on plane

Did a quick search for Nitro Z-6 and came across this:

https://www.bassboatmagazine.com/threads/nitro-z-6-review.12092/

With a 1300 lb weight and a 1100 lb capacity (that's 2400 lbs total), and a max 115 hp rating, I can see why it would take a long time to get on plane

mine was super sluggish. Would do ok empty, but with full tanks it wouldnt get on plane unless my partner got up on the front deck. I tried all sorts of weight distributions tricks. Even moved the 24v tm batteries up under the front deck. 115 optimax

That particular nitro model seems to have more cases of delamination than others
