USS Marguerite II (SP-892) was a United States Navy patrol vessel in commission from 1917 and 1919.

Marguerite II was built as a private motorboat in 1917.[1] In 1917, the U.S. Navy acquired her for use as a section patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned as USS Marguerite II (SP-892) sometime in 1917.[2] Sometime in 1918 she was renamed USS SP-892,[3] presumably to avoid confusion with another patrol boat. USS Marguerite (SP-193), in commission at the same time.

The Navy disposed of SP-892 sometime in 1919 via an unknown means.[4]

No other records of Marguerite II's operational history are available, nor are any records of her characteristics.
