Snark (SP-1291) was built in 1917 by the Herreshoff Mfg. Co., Bristol, R.I. The motor boat was acquired by the Navy from its owner, Mr. Carl Tucker of New York City, on a free lease basis and commissioned on 30 August 1917.

Snark was assigned to the 5th Naval District and performed patrol duty until 29 March 1919. On that date, she was struck from the Navy list and returned to her owner.
