Burger Boat Co. recently launched Coregonus, a 60-foot research vessel built for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.


R/V Coregonus is replacing the R/V Barney Devine, a steel fishing tug Burger built in 1937.

SeaCraft Design in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., designed Coregonus. Powered by twin Caterpillar C12 diesel engines, the all-welded aluminum vessel will cruise at 20 knots. An on-board laboratory, gill net fishing equipment, trawl net reel, folding dive platform, crane and hydro-acoustic gear make for a versatile research vessel that can be used in all but the most extreme sea conditions.

The pilothouse windshield and open aft deck are heated to prevent icing during winter operations.
