Fairhaven was a sternwheel steamboat of the Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet which operated from 1889 to 1918.
Fairhaven was built in 1889 by John J. Holland for the Pacific Navigation Company in his shipyard at Tacoma, Washington. The vessel was placed on the run from Seattle, to Bellingham, Washington, by way of Whidbey Island and the town of La Conner, Washington.
On November 3, 1911, Fairhaven sank at her mooring in Seattle. She was raised, but was destroyed by fire in 1918.
