Wyandance was built as a private motorboat of the same name in 1905 by the Electric Boat Company at Bayonne, New Jersey. On 19 June 1917, the U.S. Navy acquired her from her owner, Mr. M. S. Burrill of Jericho, Long Island, New York, for use as a patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned as USS Wyandance (SP-359) on 24 August 1917 at New York City.
Wyandance was decommissioned early in 1918. The Navy returned her to her owner on 2 February 1918, and she was stricken from the Navy List the same day.
