Burger Boat Company recently announced the launch of the motor yacht Coregonus. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will receive the 60’ Research Vessel to replace the R/V Barney Devine, a steel Fishing Tug built by Burger Boat Company in 1937.

SeaCraft Design in Sturgeon Bay, WI designed the R/V Coregonus for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to meet the demanding requirements of the department. Powered by twin Caterpillar C12 diesel engines, the all welded aluminum R/V Coregonus will provide a cruising speed of 20 knots. 

An onboard laboratory, gill net fishing equipment, trawl net reel, folding dive platform, crane and hydro-acoustic gear makes the R/V Coregonus a versatile research vessel. She can be used in all, but the most extreme sea conditions. In addition, the pilothouse windshield and open aft deck are heated to prevent icing during winter operations.
