The F/V Time Bandit is a commercial crab fishing vessel co‑ by brothers Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand. It is featured on the Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch. The Time Bandit is a 113-foot house aft boat owned by the Hillstrand brothers that was designed by the Hillstrands’ father.

The five men helped custom-build the boat’s interior, including some comforts unheard of in a crab boat: a four-man sauna, state rooms with queen-size beds and a dishwasher. The vessel carries 137 pots. The engine and prop upgrades were detailed in a special episode of Deadliest Catch about the history of the Time Bandit on April 16, 2013
