Used as an auxiliary gunboat, Huntress departed New York for patrol duties off Staten Island, and from 29 July to 12 August cruised in Long Island Sound. She then operated briefly around New York before decommissioning in August or September. Huntress departed New York Navy Yard 30 December 1898 for duty with the New Jersey Naval Militia.
The yacht remained with the New Jersey Naval Militia helping to train officers and men until 1907, when she was loaned to Missouri for Naval Militia training. Huntress was sold 3 December 1917.
