New carpet w/padded front deck 2/2019
1996 Bass Cat Eyra – 17’11” original model style- I am the second owner and all updates have been done by me.
If you’re in the market for an 18 foot boat (I.e. Sabre type), this is basically a Sabre on steroids. It can do everything as well and handles big water even better. This particular
boat has fished all across the United States. Besides home waters in Arkansas, we’re talking Lake Falcon, TX, Lake Fork, Kentucky Lake, Guntersville, Fort Gibson Lake, OK,
Pickwick Lake, TN, ………….and Lake Michigan (yes, the Great Lake). It’s THAT good on big waters.
Upgrades and updates………
2012 Mercury Pro XS 175 (400 hours- compression excellent per H2o Sportz)
Tempest Plus prop 24 pitch
Minn Kota Maxxum 80 trolling motor
Detwiler Hydraulic Jackplate
E- ladder(jackplate mounted)
Hotfoot -MOUNTED (not on slide).
Blinker style trim and jackplate adjustment switches on steering column.
Minn Kota 330 on board charger with battery master shut-off switch.
Pro Air system (livewell pump in/out), aerator and recirculator
2 bilge pumps.
2006 style Bass Cat seats (seat bottoms need re-sewn on both).
36 gal fuel tank
custom deck extension
Aurora Canvas custom cover
Lowrance 1240A flasher
*As of 2/2019- Eyra is getting Humminbird 899 SI/DI on console and 859 DI on the bow
2015 Bass Cat single axle trailer with brakes and swingaway tongue- both hubs replaced.
It has been used. NADA sheet available and pricing well below low retail (by $4k) provides room for carpet/seats. With deck extension two can fish comfortably up front.
**As of 2/2019- Eyra has new carpet WITH padded front deck. Still needs seat bottoms recovered/resewn.
Because of the new carpet and the boat had been priced well below NADA, price is $13,000 firm.
I will not monitor this post so contact info is
This is a beautiful boat

Thanks, colors are blueberry, sand and charcoal. All PMs replied to.
TTT. Took it out today for first time in 3 months to let it play a little……….
Wow jignpig, did my jaw drop when I saw your Eyra for sale! It is a beautiful and uncommon boat. I am still running my 96 Eyra after all these years. Talking to you years ago about yours swayed me to buy it. Hope all is well, old friend, and good luck with the sale.

Good to hear from you! Everything’s fine. Just moving on to other things in life. Wife and I have a travel trailer. Into motorcycles now. Looking around a different boat (open bow). Glad you are enjoying that 96 Eyra. Probably the best all around 18 foot Cat they ever built….
TTT- would make a good winter project to pad and recarpet.
TTT for winter “special”. Boat show season starts next month.
Updated contact info and equipment/new carpet. Price is $13,000 firm.
