Northbank 500 Cuddy – boat test in Trailerboat Fisherman 2013
Trailerboat Fisherman 2013
Just how do you describe a cuddy deck boat? It’s a good question to pose as the variety of cuddy designs becomes remarkably varied. Certainly, one cuddy you will like the style of is the Adelaide-built Northbank 500C. This fibreglass craft looks like a sporty runabout at first glance but incorporates a small cuddy below the curved, sporty deck. Because of the relatively low centre of gravity created by the low deck-line, the craft’s handling is very good, and when combined with a genuine deep Vee, makes the Northbank quite a smooth performer in rough water.
Built by Northbank Fibreglass Boats, this craft provides a great choice for anyone wanting to fish coastal as well as estuary and bay waters. In many ways, the Northbank 500C is the ideal boat for the empty-nester because it’s comfortable for two people yet also provides quarter seats for guests who may come along. And I’m thinking here of the grandkids that may need babysitting!
