People were very nice and helpful; bathrooms are individual toilet/shower units, so privacy is good. Located a short walk from the old port and the touristy areas.

Great location - easy walk along the trail into the heart of the restaurant and pub area. A calm city marina. They bill themselves as a luxury marina but that is more aspirational at this point. Most buildings still temporary. Still, a good spot.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your review and kind words. We look forward to seeing you again as the facilities evolve. Safe travels!

The 5 star reviews make no sense. The docks are gorgeous, but the facilities are trailers and have been for the past several years. The bathrooms have exposed framing, broken trash cans, and the sinks are pulling off the walls. The office is in a glorified mobile home. The location is okay; DiMillio’s is much better. The staff is reasonably friendly, about like we’ve found in most marinas. The docks are 5-star gorgeous, but as soon as you step into dry land the facilities are decidedly 1 star.

Marina Response:
Thank you happymama for your comments. We are so glad you loved the docks and we are excited to continue working toward the final facilities to achieve 5 stars all around. We hope to see you again soon.

Our second stay at Fore Points! Great service from all of the staff and a modern marina. As a newish Marina it is still developing some of its amenities but it has a good location for a short walk to downtown.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind comments! We look forward to sharing new amenities with you in the future and seeing you again soon!

Great Marina. This is now my go to marina when in Portland. Docks are new, stable, spacious and CLEAN. Very close to downtown restaurants and shops and they can even help you secure a Rez at some of the top restaurants. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back.

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved having you and wish you could have stayed longer to experience more of Portland, but that just means you will have to come back again soon! :)

Clean, easy docking, exceptionally polite staff, accommodating dock master, close to town, good security, nice amenities. Just great. Except why do I have to create a account to review. That angers me.

Docks are floating and nice and wide. Plenty of room between boats. They live up to their description. We will return.

Fore Points proved to be the ideal staging point for picking up and dropping off crew. Eric and John were both very professional and friendly and clearly put the safety of your boat and crew first. Portland is a wonderful town, and Fore Points, while a good walk away, is a safe, clean, and very efficiently managed vantage point from which to enjoy it. Katherine Merservier could not have been more friendly and helpful, and I look forward to our next visit.

Marina Response:
Hi Frances! We are so happy to hear that you had an incredible experience, and for such a well thought out response. We look forward to having you back again next summer. :)

Although they are still using temporary heads & showers as the facility is still under construction, the docks and staff are top notch. Every one of the dock staff who we worked with was neat in appearance, cheerful, knowledgeable and professional. Plus the location is great: a short walk to the Old Port section of town without being right in the noise and bustle of the other marinas. We will definitely be back next time we're in Portland.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the love, we are so happy you loved your stay! We are looking forward to hosting you next time you are in town, and sharing our journey to our permanent facilities with you. Cheers!

When cruising to visit Portland/Casco Bay we have enjoyed staying at FPM several times. The facility is quite new, very professionally operated, clean and the staff have been quite helpful and courteous. What we particularly enjoy is it's close proximity to downtown Portland where can easily walk to restaurants (usually brunch or dinner) as well as enjoying retail shopping. During the day we like to cruise Casco Bay with it's many beautiful Islands then returning to FPM, which is one of our favorite marinas.

Well the drone shots really were impressive unfortunately the marina building is a mobile trailer and the staff less than hospitable.... unprofessional and not yacht savvy

Nice new docks with plenty of room. Rode out the remnants from Hurricane Ida here without a worry. Staff were very friendly and stayed late to help us tie up and check in when we arrived.

We are liveaboards on a 42 ft catamaran and spent almost a week at Fore Points Marina. We found the staff to be extremely service-oriented and hospitable, the brand new dock to be ample and beautifully appointed, and the location ideal. We loved that while there, we were able to enjoy unobstructed views of the harbor and easy walking access to all the amazing things downtown Portland has to offer (without the noise and crowds). Another bonus is the delicious food truck, Evo, right there on site. Note: at the time of our stay, they did not have laundry machines on site but had plans for them to be installed soon. The marina is brand new and no doubt will only improve with time. We will be back soon!

Fore Points is only 2 years old so everything is brand new. The heads/showers are in temporary buildings but are very nice. The docks are wide and the cleats are movable so they can place them anywhere you want. The staff is extremely friendly helpful and attentive. Katherine and Eric are very hands on and go out of their way to make the experience at Fore Points a positive one. There is a bike/running path right outside the marina which provides a nice way to stroll to town. We spent a week at the marina during a tropical storm and found the docks to be very stable. The staff was available ahead of the storm to assist with additional lines/cleats. Lastly this marina is very quiet. We chose this spot vs. the marina in the heart of Portland because it's just far enough away from the buzz but close enough to walk when we wanted to partake in the fun. I highly recommend Fore Points!

Nice new marina that is still under construction but all the basics are in. No fuel or pumpout as of 8/5/20. Easy walk to downtown and a 2.5 mile bike ride to three grocery stores.

Marina Response:
Good Morning, We are so thankful that you have chosen to stay with us and are having a wonderful stay. We are expecting fuel to be operational this month. Looking forward to having you back!

Fore Points' docks are top notch! Probably the best in the state. It's super calm within the concrete docks. The staff here are very helpful and make the stay a pleasant one. You can tell they appreciate their customers. Plus, you can't beat the location being a short walk to Old Port, Portland!

Marina Response:
Thank you Steve for the great review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and the Old Port! Hope to see you again!

Very exciting to have Fore Points Marina serving Portland Harbor! The staff (both office and dock) were very welcoming and helpful. The wave attenuators offer a smooth stay while docked at the marina. This was the perfect place to enjoy happy hour and also dock for the day while exploring the Old Port.

I can’t say enough amazing things about Fore Points. They care about the overall guest experience from the time you book your first slip to the time you are ready to come back. They actively look for the best places for you to visit during your stay in Portland and welcome you as if you are family. For anyone looking for an adventure for your home away from home, look no further!

The staff was nice. The docks are great. A short 15 minute walk to downtown on a paved walking and bike path by the water. Once they get the regular buildings up, this is the place to stay.

This marina is rather new. It has the potential to be a 5-star marina, but is still suffering from some start-up pains. The staff is top-notch. They are there to help and their dedication to customer service is abundantly clear. However, there were regular electrical problems during my 10 day stay. This didn't directly affect me as my electrical use is minimal, but do check in with the marina to see if they have rectified their situation. (pun intended) The bathroom was nice, but had septic service and would occasionally smell between pump-outs. They were still in the process of adding fencing, painting buildings, security, electricity, etc. Next summer, this will likely be a 5-star facility. They are really trying and the staff is super helpful and friendly. Thanks for a great stay!

Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind words and feedback. Our guests are number one! We look forward to seeing you next year when the permanent buildings are erected. Happy Sails!

To provide a review at this time would not do justice for Forepoints. The marina is just too new but has great potential for future development. During our stay, the electric was sporadic. The fuel pumps were inoperable. Not even all the floating dock boards were screwed down. The club facilities consisted of trailers and tents. The assistants were very helpful and courteous. Looking further to staying here again as it has the potential to be a high class marina.

Marina Response:
Thank you hjrecla! We look forward to having you next year when we reopen with permanent buildings and the final touches in tact. See you then!
