I have decided to sell my 2009 Stratos 186xt with Evinrude Etec 90HP motor. This boat is in amazing condition and needs absolutely nothing to be one great fishing boat. The gel coat is in great shape as is the carpet and the seats. The boat is kept in the garage and is washed down after every lake trip. The motor is in great condition, the only item that was needed was a new oil reservoir as the old one had a small leak (I still have the old one if the new owner would like to see it.) The motor starts up great every time Im at the lake. The boat is loaded down with a Humminbird 998 on the console and a Humminbird 1198 on the bow. They are networked together and the bow has the upgraded GPS puck. I have recently installed a www.fishingspecialties.com transducer mount on the bow, I really like it but also have a transducer shield saver that will come with the boat if you prefer to have the transducer on the trolling motor. The transducer on the bow is brand new (week old). I am incredibly anal about cables and wiring so all wires have been arranged and the exterior wires on the boat are very clean. On the bow is a Terrova 24 volt trolling motor with Ipilot. The boat really is loaded and is great to fish with. This will make someone an awesome gas sipping boat that handles great. This boat truly needs nothing more that a new owner...The low retail on this boat is $11670.00, average retail is $13,320.00. This is with none of the other options listed above. I am asking $10,000.00 for everything!!! This boat really is in awesome condition and is very clean!!
I have purchased a new home and sent my titles in to get the address changed, they will be back in my hands ASAP, this boat is owned outright by me.
I am willing to meet at a lake(I live near Fort Worth) for a test ride to serious buyers. Email me with any questions you have.

Good looking Stratos and a heckuva deal!!! I know, I own a 2004 Stratos ...w/90HP Evinrude ...and have had to put all the whistles and bells on it....(2 1199's etc) Good luck shipmate, should have no problems... God Bless
By the way, I have 2 more seats and a center seat that will come with the boat. The center console was built by me and is built like a tank. The interior is lined with the same material that is used for the step pads on the boat, it has plenty of space inside to hold all your valuables while in the boat.
I walk on it all the time moving from front to the back of the boat...

Mistake, well if you still enjoy fishing.....yes sir, mistake. But things happen in life, sometimes beyond our pitiful control so, having said that, understand. Still, all in all, very nice rig. Only better would be 'upgrading' to larger boat/more engine. Even then, I, like you, would have to think about it.. God Bless and good luck (at that price - you won't need it!)
