The second Majestic (SP‑3061), a steel‑hulled, paddlewheel steamer, was built in 1903 at Elizabethport, N.J., as Happy Day; chartered by the Navy 30 August 1918 from Potomac & Chesapeake Steamboat OD.; and commissioned the same day.

 

Assigned to the 5th Naval District, she patrolled the Potomac and carried passengers to nearby points. After World War I ended, Majestic was returned to her owner 24 March 1919. She continued in merchant service until abandoned in 1928.
