Jeannette was built as a civilian motorboat in 1905 by B. C. Huffstetler at Miami, Florida. The U.S. Navy acquired her on 14 May 1917 from her owner, B. A. Long of Beaufort, South Carolina, for use as a patrol vessel during World War I. She was commissioned the same day as USS Jeannette (SP-149).
Jeannette was decommissioned on 7 February 1919. After that, she was used for a time in a non-commissioned status at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island at Parris Island, South Carolina. She was sold on 16 January 1920 to the E. O. Hall boat yard at Charleston, South Carolina.
