I am putting up for sale my 2012 Egret 189. This boat has been a joy to own but it's time to move back to an offshore ride. I am the third owner of this boat. Boat has been stored on trailer and inside since new. Based upon 2nd owner the first owner used the boat in freshwater and stored it inside. Second owner used the boat in both fresh and salt but stored it in shed at their residence in Georgia (not on coast). Since purchasing this boat a couple years ago boat has been used for trips to Louisiana and stored inside (away from coast) when not in use. Boat is in immaculate condition and is one of the best equipped 189's out there. All service records in hand. 2012 Yamaha 150 has 337 hours showing. Since I've owned it I've done necessary maintenance. New plugs, impeller, and even had injectors cleaned (just because). Only thing I've done with motor since owning, other than service, is I had to adjust throttle sensor, it was slightly off to negative side. Otherwise I've had no issues. I take pride in my boats and believe this is boat is as close to new condition as could be expected for it's age. Current build time for new boat 12-24 months assuming this crazy supply chain stuff gets resolved.

2012 Carbon Kevlar Hull. Some minor scuffs underneath but nothing that would cause any concern. As you can see from photos the underside is extremely nice. It's my understanding the Carbon/Kevlar (C/K) upgrade is a $9k upgrade. Dry hull weight 825#'s and a posted draft 10-11". The 189 cockpit is also self bailing unlike most skiffs. The 189's carry their keel nearly to bow so it provides better open water performance than most (if not all) 19' skiffs out their. New this boat would spec out around or slightly more than $100k. Construction quality is top. No spider cracking in gel coat, hatches and floor rock solid. Hardware is in like new condition. Gelcoat still shines like new (see starboard photo) can see the reflection from trailer on it.

150 Yamaha with 337 hours. Meticulously maintained with all service records.
Easy cruise in mid/upper 30's. Have pushed it to low 40's. Fuel usage is minimal. Fuel tank is 48 gallons (from memory). Fish multiple days on tank of fuel and we do some long runs to salt water (20 miles one way) where I fish in Louisiana.

Upgrades I've done since owning (last couple years).
New M/K Terravo TM 36V 54" shaft. Spot lock remote controlled.
New NSS EVO3 12" mounted on dash with on those fancy fully adjustable BallzOut mounts.
Sirrius/ XM wsm4 so boat is ready for weather/music subscription.
New JL speakers (M6). New JL amp. New fusion controller.
New airmar p79 in hull transducer (holds bottom at speed) and side scan/down view simrad transom mounted (came with NSS evo 3).
I replaced all the guts on both power poles...bushings, hoses, sticks, and bolts. I had a leak in one of the lines on one trip so when I got back I rehabbed both units.
New custom sea dek in front lockers & rod lockers. Poling platform is not new but shows like new.

Boat comes with custom twin axle EZ loader trailer....way overbuilt for this boat.
Because I trailer some distance to coast a safe trailer is important to me.
New in last two years. Oil bath hubs from EZ-loader. New Goodyear endurance tires (including spare), new aluminum wheels. I installed a swing away tongue so could store it in my garage.
Very little rust on trailer b/c most of use has been in fresh water.

Options boat came with from factory.
Both main livewell and secondary livewell (port side) have bubbler systems built in and run of main house battery.
Stealth charging system. Both on the run charging and 110 AC plug.
Underwater lights (green).
Raw water washdown. Outlet is located in splash well by motor.
2 - 8' Blade power poles.
4 - in deck rod holders (come in very handy while fishing).
Boat has hardware installed for black bimini top. I've never used the top, currently it's stored in my garage and looks very unused. I also have threaded push pole holders (never used by me).
Boat has some custom pipe work that can be used on stern deck to create a fishing seat on rear deck. I've never used it but have factory pic of it I can provide.
Lighted compartment (main under seat) and livewells.

This boat has been a joy to own and fish. Handles two guys on bow with minimal movement/tipping. Gunnels are walk able. For those that don't know the brand and boat do some research...there is a reason the Egret 189 is considered a cadillac. We cross alot of big water on our runs and this boat has never left me feeling uncomfortable. When it's rough give her some tabs and the forward keel design shines.

Only selling b/c I have decided to get back into an offshore boat. I was so impressed with build quality on this boat I'm moving to a bigger Egret.

$53,500 OBO.  New boat is here so open to reasonable offers.
