Sevaris NorthStar 640RW Sevaris Marine
The NorthStar 640 RW, the first NorthStar RIB from exclusive importer Sevaris Marine, has arrived in Australia. Recognised as a true all-round RIB, NorthStar’s 640 RW delivers performance, comfort and safety in equal measure.

Featuring NorthStar’s high-performance Hydro-Delta fibreglass hull and large diameter Hypalon tubes, the 640 RW measures 6.40m LOA with a 2.70m beam. The wide beam provides spacious internal measurements of 5.35m x 1.56m, creating a true centre console RIB with walk-around space either side of the console, along with dedicated seating for up to eight adults (official passenger capacity of 14 people, using the tubes as temporary seating).

The NorthStar 640 RW’s practical layout – with creative storage solutions to stow a range of gear – is designed to suit packed-out trips, be that a day-trip to a secluded beach, a dive/fishing trip to an inshore reef or whale watching offshore.

All NorthStar RIBs over six metres in length meet CE Category B Offshore (defined as: ‘Designed for offshore voyages where conditions up to and including wind force F8 and significant wave heights up to and including 4m may be experienced’). This rating, combined with NorthStar’s technologically-advanced construction techniques – vacuum infusion or resin transfer moulding (RTM) technologies for all fibreglass components for exceptionally strong, lightweight construction – adds to the 640 RW’s ‘go-anywhere, do-anything’ reputation.

The 640 RW’s wide transom features a rear boarding ladder for easy access to/from the water, making the boat suitable for diving and towsports, while an optional shower and 60L freshwater tank allows people and gear to be rinsed onboard.

The 200hp maximum power rating packs plenty of punch and the 160L fuel tank provides extended range for coastal and inter-island trips.

For use as a fun all-round sports boat or as a stylish tender to a larger vessel, the 640 RW’s perfect weight distribution and high-quality, lightweight construction, makes it one of the safest and most versatile RIBs on the market.


The NorthStar 640 RW is available for inspection and sea trial at Sevaris Marine’s headquarters – South of Perth Yacht Club, Coffee Point, Applecross WA.
