Although the junior of the Northbank fleet, the 500C has a big boat manner. With excellent stability at rest and whilst underway the 500C has few equals in a craft of this size.
The low profile cabin with its walk-thru bow makes anchoring a breeze, while the cabin is great for dry storage and shelter on those breezy days.
Northbank 500C will be the envy of your family and friends. It's easily launched by one person, light to to tow with a family sedan, terrific deck space with ample storage, stand out styling and a proven all rounder in all waters.

DECK COLOUR is defined as a gel-coat colour above the bumper strip.
HULL COLOUR is defined as a gel-coat colour from the underside of the bumper strip to either halfway down the hull or to the chine.
A wide range of hull and deck gelcoat colours are available for most Northbank models.
Not only can you choose from our popular pallet, but we have the ability to customise colours to suit you.
If you have a particular colour in mind, contact your nearest Northbank dealer to discuss your specific needs.
Both hull and deck colours are pigmented into the gelcoat and finished off to the high standards expected of all Northbank boats.
GELCOAT: is the outermost structural layer on a fibreglass boat hull, designed to protect the underlying fibreglass layers.
2 PACK: Acrylic Enamel, is a paint system involving an acrylic paint melamine (colour), and a hardener resin. When combined, these two resins result in a chemical reaction producing a hardened solution.
VINYL WRAPS: are applied over the finished boat.
*Please note these colours may not be an exact colour match to hull colours due to inks and printing limitations.
SA Angler - issue 80
Then there’s the Northbank 500 Cuddy, which is designed to suit the needs (and budgets) of the weekend angler or family boater. It’s a superbly finished craft that’s easy to tow and store, cheap to run and extremely versatile.
The 500 Cuddy is neat little craft designed to carry two or three in comfort. It has been embraced by local anglers as the ideal boat for chasing our inshore fish such as whiting, gar and blue crabs. As a cuddy cab, it offers a good measure of cockpit space, along with just enough under-cover area for keeping clothing and valuables away from the elements.
You’ll find handy storage space beneath the short berths up front, as well as further sub-deck storage and a pair of side pockets to accommodate gaffs and landing nets.
