CCGS Bartlett is a Marine service vessel and navigational aid tender operated by the Canadian Coast Guard.[1]

CCGS Bartlett was built in 1969 at Marine Industries, Sorel. She was modernized in 1988 at Halifax Shipyards, Halifax which saw new propulsion and navigation equipment installed.

She is classed as a Marine Service Vessel and is an Ice Strengthened Medium Navaids Tender. Her twin vessel is CCGS Provo Wallis but the two vessels are not identical; Provo Wallis underwent a refit in 1990 that saw her hull lengthened by 20 ft (6.1 m) as well as a higher capacity derrick. The homeport of CCGS Bartlett is CCG Base Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.

CCGS Bartlett is named after Captain Robert Bartlett a Newfoundland seaman and Arctic mariner. He participated in the Peary and Stefanson expeditions and when his ship, Karluk was crushed in ice in the Bering Sea, he walked with an Inuk companion from Wrangell Island to Siberia and eventually succeeded in rescuing his crew. He continued to make Arctic voyages in his own vessel for two decades.
