The third USS Wave (YFB-10) was a United States Navy ferryboat commissioned in 1916 and struck in 1938.

Wave was a steel-hulled ferryboat either purchased at or built by the Charleston Navy Yard, in 1916. Soon after being placed in service, Wave was assigned to the Torpedo Station at Newport, Rhode Island. That may have been her only assignment since the few records of her service extant suggest that she served in the 2nd Naval District, which contained Newport until it was disbanded, and then in the 1st Naval District, which inherited Newport, throughout the remainder of her active career.

In July 1920, as the Navy instituted its alphanumeric hull classification system, she received the designation YFB-10. Her name was struck from the Navy List on 20 January 1938. No record of her subsequent fate has been uncovered.
