I don’t know much about the nitros but that seems really slow. My javelin 366 fs which was a 17’ glass bass boat ran 40 with a 90ho evinrude. Current boat is a v175 pro guide with 115 mercury and that will run 42-43 with me 280 lbs my buddy 200 lbs and full tank.
Are you trimming up once you get on plane? What’s your rpm’s at wot?

My 2021 Z19 Sport will do 50 mph. Half a tank of gas and lots of gear. Mercury 150.

Some questions:
Is the mph GPS reading?
How Many Motor rpms while running that speed?
Does it have a 10" Jack plate (I believe it's standard a Z21)?
What Prop and size?
How high is your roster tail when running at that speed?
How many inches it the motor height?

That boat with a 21 inch pitch prop should be going at least 60 mph according to the Mercury prop selector on their website. As pointed out, when asking for answers please include some details, for all we know you have your props switched from your Minnkota TM to your outboard.

Any time you have speed questions you should include motor & prop information, RPMs, load, pad to prop height. That boat should be running at least low 60s!
