Zenda (SP-688)—a wooden-hulled motorboat built in 1912 at Neponset, Mass., by George Lawley & Sons— was acquired by the Navy on 19 May 1917 from Mr. Francis S. Eaton for service with the section patrol. Commissioned on 25 June 1917, she served in the 1st Naval District as a district patrol craft for the duration of World War I. Decommissioned soon after the armistice, she was returned to her owner on 30 January 1919; and her name was struck from the Navy list that same day
