(CH_3)_3N < C_2H_5NH_2 < C_2H_5OH

Alcohols have a higher boiling point as compared to that of amines because oxygen, being more electronegative, forms stronger hydrogen bond as compared to that of nitrogen.

In tertiary amines, there is no hydrogen to form hydrogen bond and hence, has the lowest boiling point.
