The four-masted schooner Sally Persis Noyes was built by the Frye Flinn Company of Harrington in 1918. The ship was initially operated by the Crowell & Thurlow Company and laid up during the great Depression.
In 1932, it was purchased and refitted by Robert L. Royall of East Boothbay for use as a school ship under the name Constellation. During WW II, the ship was sailing under the American Intercontinental Steamship Company and sank in Bermuda in 1943.
