Beverly's harborfront has a rich and varied history. Originally settled in 1626, Beverly began as a fishing, farming and trading community. Beverly became the birthplace of the American Navy when the schooner "Hannah" was commissioned and outfitted here by order of George Washington as the first Warship of the Continental Navy. On September 5, 1775, the "Hannah" sailed from Glover Wharf in Beverly, now called Glover Wharf Municipal Marina.

The Ferryway Landing is the oldest common landing place in the United States still in use today. Beverly Harbor continues to be alive with diverse activities. Commercial fishing still plays an important role in the harbor. Nearly 1,000 recreational boaters enjoy Beverly as their hailing port. Beverly Harbor offers a variety of services, as well as, pump-out facilities, transient moorings, rental slips, fuel, haul out and various marine services.

The Beverly Harbormaster's Department oversees 12.5 miles of coastline, including waters in the Danvers and Bass Rivers, as well as the water surrounding Misery, Little Misery, and Bakers Islands.
