USS Marinette (LCS-25) will be a Freedom-class littoral combat ship of the United States Navy. According to the Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, LCS-25 will be the first ship in naval service named after Marinette, Wisconsin. This claim overlooks the Navy's Nantick-class large harbor tug Marinette YTB-791, also named after Marinette, Wisconsin.

Marinette Marine was awarded the contract to build Marinette on 31 March 2016 and is building the ship at its Marinette, Wisconsin shipyard.
