USS SP-672, a 76-foot motor boat, was built in 1907 at Long Island City, New York, as the civilian pleasure craft Lillian II. Later renamed Miramar, she was taken over by the Navy in August 1918 and commissioned later in that month as USS Miramar (SP-672). While serving on patrol duties in the Eighth Naval District in 1918, her name was changed to SP-672. She was returned to her owner in late December 1918, following the Armistice.
This page features our only view of USS SP-672, which was originally USS Miramar.
