A man who died after falling from a runabout off the NSW Central Coast was not wearing a life jacket, police say.

A 57-year-old Monterey man was fishing on Thursday from the rear of the boat approximately 1km off Forresters Beach, while his 64-year-old brother from Canley Heights operated the vessel.

Police said the younger man fell from the stern of the boat and was not wearing a life jacket, and his older brother was unable to rescue him.

Just after 1pm (AEDT), emergency services were alerted to a man in the water. The 57-year-old was taken to shore by lifeguards, but attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful, police said.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner, but said there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.
