Vanessa Pike left her riveting insurance career in 2010 to begin a position in tourism. For 8 years, as the Membership Director at Visit Portland (greater Portland’s Convention & Visitors Bureau), she supported local hospitality & tourism businesses and promoted the destination to tourists. In keeping that theme, she now promotes Portland as a destination to tourists arriving via boat.

Fore Points Marina is a 150-slip marina presently under construction on the eastern waterfront of Portland. With slip demand greater than supply, the marina fills a void in Casco Bay for local and transient boats of all sizes. Slips range from 25 to 545 feet and the marina is being built with the latest and most advanced technology available. This is the first phase of Portland Foreside development - 10 acres of land that is being transformed to mixed-use buildings and public green space along the waterfront.
