F/V Time Bandit

F/V Time Bandit

Built in 1991 at the Giddings Boat Yard in Coos Bay, Oregon, the F/V Time Bandit is a 298 ton, 113 foot house-aft boat with a beam 28 feet across. It has an 8 foot draft and is powered by two 600 horsepower Cummins QSK19 engines with a cruising speed of 9 knots. It has a hold capacity of 120,000 pounds for king crab, 175,000 for snow crab and 370,000 for salmon.

The F/V Time Bandit was designed by Andy and Johnathan's father, John Sr., and custom-built by the Hillstrands themselves. The boat includes such unusual amenities as queen-size beds, a four-person sauna and a dishwasher.

The F/V Time Bandit’s home port is Homer, Alaska.
