USS Abarenda (1898-1926, later AC-13 & AG-14)

USS Abarenda, a 6680-ton collier, was built for commercial use in 1892 at Newcastle, England. Acquired by the Navy for Spanish-American War service, she was commissioned in May 1898 and transported coal and supplies to warships serving off Cuba.

For nearly three decades after 1898, Abarenda supported Navy operations World-wide as a collier, supply ship and, occasionally, as a station ship. She was designated AC-13 in 1920 and AG-14 in 1924. Abarenda was decommissioned in January 1926 and sold the following month.
