*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.
We tested the hard top version off O’Sullivan Beach in early August and were as impressed with the boat’s performance as its big, bold lines. There is no doubt about its credentials to handle long range tuna fishing off Port MacDonnell, snapper fishing on Tapley Shoal and practically every other scenario in between.
The 650HT has an enormous cockpit with higher than average sides. Fishing four for snapper wouldn’t be an issue and there’s plenty of beam (2.44m) to carry several trolling rods across the transom.
The addition of a hard top really increases this boat’s appeal, particularly in offshore situations. The Northbank hard top is quite high –- certainly high enough for the average guy to stand under without fear of banging his head – and this provides the ultimate in protection from the elements.
Copping a face-full of spray on a cold day offshore while trolling for tuna isn’t much fun, but this is something you’ll never have to worry about with the 650HT.
