Noah was 600 years old when the flood started (Genesis 7:6), and we also know that he already had his sons (he had them after turning 500 - Genesis 5:32) when God spoke to him (God mentions his taking his wife, sons and daughter-in-laws with him, when He tells of His plan with the ark - Genesis 6:18).
So when he built the ark he was somewhere between 500 and 600 years old, give or take some years, as his sons were already married; it really depends on when God came to him and how long it took to build the boat.
