The Sylvina W. Beal is a knockabout schooner (a type of schooner without a bowsprit).  She was built with long bow overhangs to allow easier handling at wharves and prevent loss of life at sea caused by men being washed off the bowsprit when furling heavy sails in bad weather. McManus in Essex, Massachusetts first used this design in 1901 when designing the schooner Helen B. Thomas. This design replaced the prominent bowsprits called "Widow-Makers," was fast, and very seaworthy.

The Sylvina W. Beal was built in East Boothbay Harbor, Maine in 1911 at the Frank J. Adams Yard. She was built for Charles H. Beal of Beals Island and named for his wife Sylvina W. (Alley) Beal of Jonesport. Launched as a fishing schooner, she fished as both a herring and mackerel seiner. She was also used as a seafood cargo carrier until she was converted to a windjammer passenger schooner in 1981. Since 2002 she has been operated as a windjammer out of Eastport and Bar Harbor, Maine.  She has also been used as a setting in two movies, Amistad (1997) and Age of Innocence (1993).

Sylvina W. Beal is currently out of the water after receiving many upgrades, including some refastening and new planks. This work has been inspected by the Coast Guard, and, pending an in-water final check she will be re-certified for 42 passengers.
