Deadliest Catch fans who were mourning the news that the Time Bandit was painted over can now rejoice. A Deadliest Catch fan pointed out that it appears that the Time Bandit was mistaken for another Deadliest Catch boat for sale: the Seabrooke. Here is what we know.
Two Deadliest Catch Boats For Sale
Recently, it has been reported that the Time Bandit had a new paint job and looked unrecognizable. Turns out, that was not the Time Bandit, but the Seabrooke, another boat that had been featured on the Discovery show. A fan, Heather Sheppard, tweeted this information. Turns out, this Deadliest Catch superfan was totally right!
The Time Bandit is still up for sale. Furthermore, it has not been repainted. It sill looks like a bold pirate ship. The name of the crab boat remains on the front of the boat.
On the other hand, there is a second boat from the Discovery show up for sale. This is the Seabrooke. The Seabrooke was commandeered by super captain, Scott Campbell Jr., a Deadliest Catch fan favorite. Unfortunately for Junior, he had serious back problems. Therefore, this forced the talented sea captain to retire as a captain early. Yet, he and his father still own the Seabrooke, as well as the Lady Alaska, a boat they added back in July.
Seabrooke For Sale
Now, the Campbells have put the Seabrooke up for sale. Built in 1979, the Seabrooke is currently located in Alaska. Dock Street Boaters is selling the boat. The “well-maintained” Seabrooke has had some new upgrades. That includes the sparkling paint job.
“109’x30’x14’ steel crabber/tender built by M.D. Phares Boat Construction in 1979. Twin CAT 3412 main engines, each rated at 650 hp, rebuilt in 2019. ZF 3710 gears with 5.952:1 ratio. 185 kW John Deere 6090L, 65 kW CAT 3306 gensets, Perkins hotel unit. Makes 10 knots. 29,000 gallons fuel capacity. Packs 365k# salmon, 175k# crab in (4) fish holds. IMS RSW system, (2) 50 ton units, installed new in 2017. Deck gear includes crab block, tendering set-up, and deck crane, rebuilt in 2017. New hydraulics in 2017. (2) full heads. Electronics include (3) VHF, (2) GPS, (2) computers, (2) radars, sounder, and Robertson autopilot. Well-maintained boat with recent upgrades. Call for survey. Asking $2,250,000.”
Consequently, the Campbells have not commented on their sale of the Seabrooke. Perhaps, as the Lady Alaska can pack nearly twice as much crab as the Seabrooke, they may have decided to part with their older boat.
Time Bandit Still Available
Firstly, the Time Bandit is still up for sale. Moreover, the Hillstrand brothers have never made an official statement about selling the Time Bandit. The famed fishing boat that “steals time” went up for sale in the spring. Subsequently, the Time Bandit is still up for sale for a curious $2,888,888. According to Dock Street Boaters, the Time Bandit, was built in 1991 boat is currently docked in Alaska. Their full listing explains the details of the boat.
“113’x28’x7′ steel combination Bering Sea crabber/tender built by Giddings Boat Works in 1991. Twin Cummins QSK-19 each rated at 600 hp and Twin Disc MG516 reduction gears. Iveco w/ 35 kW and (2) Cummins 6CTA w/ 125 kW gensets. (3) refurbished fish holds pack 365k lbs of salmon and 175k lbs crab. 40 ton Thermal Tec RSW w/ recent upgrades.

Neal Hillstrand Returns To The Deadliest Catch
Deadliest Catch fans were certainly thrilled when Neal Hillstrand showed up to help out Captain Jake Anderson. Jake hired Neal to fix some of the Saga’s engine room problems. Unlike his brothers Captain Johnathan, who retired, and Captain Andy, who is working on the family business back home, he appears to still have the desire to work on the Bering Sea. Could we see more of Neal in Season 16?
