F/V Time Bandit

F/V Time Bandit .. arrr!

Built here at Giddings in 1991, the Time Bandit has gone on to be one of the more memorable boats featured in the Deadliest Catch.  Every boat we’ve ever built has a story to tell worthy of an epic– maybe only at the dinner table with family & friends or yarned hard at the bar after work when fishing is slow, so it’s nice to see one of our own and her crew telling her story to the world.  Cheers!

Time Bandit Specs

  • Engines: two 425 horsepower (317 kW) Cummins diesels
  • Props: two 52×58 propellers
  • Hydraulics: two 125 kW auxiliaries
  • Crane: 10 ton 40’ knuckle boom

Much thanks to Timebandit.tv for images and help!

P.S. back in ’91 we installed this basic computer system for the Bandit.. keeping it simple for the Hillstrand brothers  :)

    Thanks for composing F/V Time Bandit, I was looking for anything very similar and
    was relieved to acquire the advice as a result of this particular
    post.

    I watched the “Time Bandit” show when it was being repaired and realized it was the boat parked at Coos Bay across from the Coast Guard station. We had wind protection while we was CRABBING at the end of the dock. We also had protection from prying eyes when we peed. I love “Deadliest Catch”. It’s even more special now. I’m gonna look at some pics with Time Bandit in the background. We were all so much younger then. Now, It’s a long walk and I use a diper and walk with a cane. Good Times

    I’m new to this. Is this where the Hillstrands will (maybe) read this? Just want to share some moments of the long ago past.

    Been auto and marine mechanic for 40 years. Would love to get my hands on some cummins engines
