USS Marold (SP-737) was a United States Navy patrol vessel in commission from 1917 to 1919.

Marold was built as a private motorboat of the same name by the Northern Boat Company at Port Clinton, Ohio, in 1914. In 1917, the U.S. Navy acquired her under a free lease from her owner, L. K. Liggett of Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, for use as a section patrol vessel during World War I. She was commissioned as USS Marold (SP-737) on 2 June 1917 with Ensign W. F. Lakeman, USNRF, in command.

Assigned to the 1st Naval District in northern New England and based at Rockland, Maine, Marold carried out patrol duties for the rest of World War I.

Marold was returned to Liggett on 9 May 1919.
