Marjorie M. was built as a private "runabout"-type motorboat of the same name in 1912 by Gottshalk at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 18 August 1917, the U.S. Navy acquired her under a free lease from her owner, A. P. Dennis, for use as a section patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned the same day as USS Marjorie M. (SP-1080).
The Navy returned Marjorie M. to Dennis on 23 November 1918.
