Adroit (SP-248)—a steam yacht built in 1907 at City Island, N.Y., by Robert Jacobs—was acquired by the Navy sometime late in 1917 from Mr. F. H. McAdoo of New York City. After she had begun fitting out under the direction of Lt. H. B. Peschau, NNV, Adroit was found to be highly unseaworthy and of extremely short cruising range. Consequently, she was never commissioned and was returned to her owner on 30 April 1918. Presumably, her name—which had appeared on the Navy list— was stricken from that list soon thereafter.
