Marin (YNT-21) was built as Pacific by Harbor Boat Works, San Pedro, Calif., in 1929; purchased by the Navy 14 November 1940 from Sam Bracco & Associates; converted and placed in service 8 March 1941 at San Diego, Calif., as Marin (YN-53), Lt. (jg.) V. H. Craig in command.

Completing sea trials, Marin was taken in tow by Sabine and entered Pearl Harbor 22 April 1941. She tended nets in the 14th Naval District throughout World War II. A classification change redesignated Marin to YNT-21 on 8 April 1942.

Returned to San Diego, she was placed out of service 18 June 1946; struck from the Navy list 19 July; and transferred to the Maritime Commission 4 March 1947 for disposal.
