The John J. Boland is a bulk carrier operated by the Buffalo based American Steamship Company.[1][2][3][4] She was launched in 1973. She was initially named Charles E. Wilson. In 2000, when the company sold the third vessel named John J. Boland the Charles E. Wilson was renamed John J. Boland.

She is a self-unloading vessel, with a Template:Convert/feet boom, mounting a conveyor belt, that could be swung to port or starboard.[4]

She was built under the terms of the Merchant Marine Act of 1970, the first of nine other vessels built by the company taking advantage of the Act's loan guarantees.[4] She cost $13.7 million USD.
