Only regularly scheduled ferry service to/from Portland that I know of is offered by Nova Star Cruises, connecting Portland to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada and the Casco Bay Lines ferries connecting downtown Portland to varous islands in Casco Bay, adjacent to Portland and other local communities.

Botson has ferriees to Provincetown on Cape Cod and a commuter ferry to the Massachusetts South Shore (between Boston and Cape Cod). Could you be thinking about one of these?).

The Boston ferries that transport car is usually between Boston & the island towns of Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket.

I do not think there is any ferry service between Boston & Portland. There are some cruise ships that have 7 day cruises out of Boston that stops at ports all over New England & Canada including Portland, but they do not accommodate cars.
