The Articus replaces the 75-foot Grayling at its homeport in Cheboygan, Michigan. The vessel was designed by JMS Naval Architects and constructed by Burger Boat Co. of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, over a period of 14 months.  

The USGS took delivery of the Articus in October 2014, when it was deployed to conduct a survey in northern Lake Michigan.  For more information, click the following link:  USGS Web Page
