The Sintram was a five-masted schooner, built in 1920 by the Freeport Ship Building Company, at the Soule Shipyard in South Freeport, Maine. She was originally designed as a Ferris-type steamer for the war effort in 1917 and 1918 to deliver supplies to Europe. Still unfinished at the war's end, the ship was redesigned and converted to a five-masted schooner that was launched in December 1920. Within a year, she sunk after a collision.
