Hello Student
Boiling pint depends on intermolecular hydrogen bonding. In case of primary amines, there are two H atoms and one N atom free for hydrogen bonding. On the other hand in case of tertiary amines, there is no H atom attached to N atom so there is no hydrogen bonding among amine molecules.
