1988 Egg Harbor 37 Convertible Fishing Boat in Wrightsville Beach

Stock #228489

Egg Harbor 37' Convertible Sportfish feels and looks like a comparable 45' sportfish when aboard. At the time, Egg Harbor build these boats to compete with Bertram's 39' and Luhrs 38.

The Egg Harbor gets better fuel economy and is faster than both. In 1988 a sportfish doing 40mph was unheard of in this size range.

Even better is that the 37's extra speed doesn't come at the expense of increased fuel consumption. In fact, it burns slightly less fuel than both the Bertram 390 and the Luhrs in the equivalent class of boat from the same period. The 37 cruises are getting right about a 1gpm in the high 20's according to published industry test reports.

The engineers of this high quality 80's Sportfish designed the strakes where stepping them increases lift and boost speed without shooting bubbles at the screws. And yes, the 37 does perform impressively, running 40 mph at wide-open throttle.

Great ride feel of a heavy boat in turbulent seas, it displaces over 24,000lbs, and as stated, the 37 Convertible has an amazing quality of construction. Teak interior from floor to ceiling, including all doors and cabinets, counter-tops, floor highlights, and the head appointment is entirely teak.

The cabin is laid out very nicely with a friendly sized stateroom with a full galley, a step down private V-berth with Master stateroom, cabin across with two berths for small adults or children adjoining head accessible from the master directly or the entry from the step-down.

Detail work in the salon is better than anyone would expect for this boat built 32 years ago. The features and the teak matched grain cabinetry, solid-brass fittings, and satin-varnish finish do not appear today on a 37' production boat.

Information On Condition

The current owner has taken care of her meticulously for her age. She lacks a fresh set of electronics and navigation system, as well as refinishing on the window seal covering boards that were repaired and re-sealed a few years back, leaving a few stains on her original wood.


One engine has 100 hrs more than the other; both were serviced recently with all new filters and oil changes and are in good running condition.

The HVAC unit also requires an overhaul, according to the owner.

Leaks in the stateroom window on the starboard side were repaired

Fresh bottom paint Fall 2020. Engine Service replacing filters and oil scheduled maintenance November 2020.

Approximate boat location: Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina
