USS Stromboli

USS "Stromboli" has been the name of three ships in the service of the United States Navy. All have been named for the island of Stromboli in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

* The first "Stromboli" was a brig originally named "Howard", that was purchased by the Navy in 1846. She served during the Mexican-American War as part of the blockade fleet. She was decommissioned on 6 September 1848 and sold later that year.
* The second "Stromboli" was the original name for the "Spuyten Duyvil" a torpedo boat built in 1864 for service toward the end of the American Civil War.
* The third "Stromboli" was the name briefly held by the USS "Wassuc", a monitor, in 1869.
