The USCGC Lilac (WAGL/WLM-227) is a former Coast Guard lighthouse tender currently located in New York City. The Lilac is America's only surviving steam-powered lighthouse tender. It was built in 1933 at the Pusey & Jones Shipyard in Wilmington, Delaware. In the 1950s she assisted several ships that collided. Decommissioned in 1972, she was donated to the Harry Lundeburg Seamanship School of Seafarers International Union. She was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 7, 2005. She is a museum ship, docked at Pier 25, near North Moore Street in Manhattan.
