For the fisherman who wants to venture offshore the Northbank 650C has much to offer.
Designed by naval architects and produced with CAD/CAM technology, the 650C is a serious offshore sports fishing platform. With excellent internal free board you can be confident that the 650C will get you home safely.
Powered by either outboard or stern drive the rig performs brilliantly in offshore conditions. Big swell or that afternoon sea breeze chop will be eaten up by the 650C.
Northbank offers a long list of high quality factory fitted options to cater for the most discerning offshore angler. You can apply the options that suit you and build your dream offshore fishing boat.

*Hull weight is measured from a standard boat. The addition of factory options will increase the hull weight from the above measurement.
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.
First impressions of the Northbank are impressive. The 650 Cuddy is a very well designed and immaculately finished vessel, which also has a slightly smaller 6m sibling born of the same design template.
The hull is of fibreglass composite construction with an excellent finish and attention to detail. As it is designed and built it Adelaide, it’s made for the rough stuff. This is reflected in the hull, which tops the scales at 1300kg.
That hull may seem a tad heavy to some, but if your pastime is serious offshore fishing, it’s a bonus — the extra weight really flattens out the ride. Also, combined with a top speed of over 80kmh, it ensures that it takes minimal time to get where you’re going, without feeling like a crash-test dummy.
Manoeuvrability and ride across a rolling swell are excellent.Instead of bouncing over the top of waves, the Northbank 650 Cuddy drives through them, flattening out the swell to make the ride that little bit more comfortable. This is thanks, in part, to the 21° deadrise, and it will no doubt score extra brownie points
when the family is aboard.
