Wow! This heavily optioned Northbank 600C provides the serious offshore fisherman a genuine tough and solid rig. Reminds me of the days when the Allison 195 was built when boats were built to fish, not to look pretty and full of gimmicky accessories. The Northbank 600C is a boat built for the seas experienced in offshore waters. A deep 21-degree hull, high internal freeboard with grab handles in the right places and a no fuss cockpit conducive for fishing.
This big girl was wetted in 2015 and is powered by the new generation Mercury 150Hp 150XL EFI four stroke. These motors really take it up to its competitors in the outboard world for their reliability, performance and exceptional fuel economy. The Mercury has been pre-tested via our workshop and is further backed with a limited BIA limited engine warranty for buyer’s confidence. The motor spins a Vengeance stainless steel propeller and steering is light via the Ultraflex hydraulic steering unit.
With approx. 150L of fuel capacity under the floor range is assured for those bigger offshore fishing trips. The engine instrumentation was also upgraded at the time of order and the helm has the Vessel View 4 installed providing the skipper with engines information. The helm is well designed and fitted with the boats switching, a Garmin GPS Map 751 XS colour screen combo GPS/Sounder unit including its mapping card, a GME VHF g-Com radio for communications back to base or boat to boat and for those that like their tunes afloat a Fusion stereo system is fitted.
Overhead a quality bimini top provides ample shade from the midday sun and the owner has also had fitted front and side clears for if the weather turns. When towing these can be removed, and the traveling tonneau cover can be clipped on keeping your gear undercover without the risk of it blowing out. The boat comes with a heavy compliment of safety gear as outlined in detail below saving you extra costs and even a MT600G EPIRB is included!
For those with a niggly back the Northbank are renowned for their soft ride in choppy waters and who wants to manually pull up a anchor? This boat alleviates that chore as a stainless-steel Stress Free electrically operated drum winch. Simply press the button to deploy or retrieve the anchor! Offshore boats with deep vee hulls can heel over with a beam breeze and you can loose the ride that these deep vee hulls set out to provide, to avoid this, the original owner has also had fitted Lectrotab trim tabs that’s allows the skipper to control the lateral heel and keep the hull running true.
The boat has loads more accessories fitted like a walk through transom, LED deck flood light and one on the bow, dual battery system, a boat latch system fitted to the trailer, snapper racks, over head stainless steel rod holders, boarding platforms and so on…… we have tried to list the features and accessories as below:
The rig is trailered on a multiroller Dunbier SRW6.1T tandem axle trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. The trailer was made in April 2015 and has an ATM of 2000Kg’s so a reasonable sized 4WD will be needed to tow. Like all our trailers sold they are pretested and sold compliant to ensure your on road towing safety.
If you are in the market for a very well respected and offshore suited 20 footer, this heavily optioned Northbank 600C offers the buyer exceptional value priced at an exciting $67,000 tow away backed with all the reassurances that JCM provides as outlined further below.
