According to Down East Magazine: "When ships sailed from Boston to ports in Maine (which were to the east of Boston), the wind was at their backs, so they were sailing downwind, hence the term 'Down East.' And it follows that when they returned to Boston they were sailing upwind; many Mainers still speak of going 'up to Boston,' despite the fact that the city lies approximately 50 miles to the south of Maine's southern border."

Are you referring to the part of Maine that sticks out further to the east than the rest of the State? I wouldn't call it "Southeast", as it's WAY further North than a good part of the state. If you're referring to the part of Maine that is about due east of Bangor (you'll need to look at a map to be sure of this), we in Maine call that "Downeast". If you're referring to the furthest south area of Maine, us Mainers just refer to that as "York County" (that is it's actual name).

Down East (it's two words, per Webster) came into usage in the late 1700s and early 1800s in the Age of Sail. Ships sailing from Boston to Maine in the late spring through early fall, the prime sailing season, when the prevailing winds were from the southwest, would sail down wind and east to reach Maine. Thus Down East. See also, the explanation at Down East, the magazine of Maine.
