Northbank's 5.5 metre Cuddy Cabin offers a great family boating experience. Its low profile sports cabin provides a dry storage area, comfort and protection from the elements.
Walk through access to the bow, thanks to a centrally opening hatch makes bow access and anchoring a breeze.
A non-slip floor, generous free board, under floor storage with gas struts on the hatch, stand out styling, an extensive list of standard fitments combined with a modern hull design make the 550C hot property.
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.

There was a whole lot of new for me when I met Andrew Stephen from Melbourne’s new Melbourne Marine Centre. I hadn’t met Andrew before, I hadn’t heard of the new business and I hadn’t seen a Northbank boat before.
Maybe this is an artefact of spending too much time in Queensland, but I was familiar with the Mercury 115HP new four-stroke. A few months ago we put it head-to-head against the existing 125HP OptiMax at the National Watersports Centre at the top of the Patterson River, where it gave the Opti a solid touch-up on most parameters.
This time, we were in the lower Patto, on the other side of the weir which separates the NWC and the tidal water.
At first glance, it looks like the Northbank 550 – the cuddy cab that we tested - is styled to be the perfect complement to the Mercury. With white gelcoat and black accents, this is a seriously good looking rig with the new style 115 four stroke on the transom. With a couple of red pin-stripes, you could call it a factory designed Mercury boat and everyone would nod and agree.
