The second U.S. Lighthouse tender named Daisy was originally the privately owned launch Genevieve, built in 1892. She was purchased by the Lighthouse Service in February of 1895 and was placed into service as the Daisy, to replace the tender Bouquet which had been wrecked. She was assigned to the 3rd Lighthouse District and was stationed at Staten Island, New York. She served as an inspection tender and also tended buoys in Gedney's Channel in lower New York Bay in the 3rd Lighthouse District.
She was sold on 19 March 1928.
