"C-BANDIT" IS THE ULTIMATE BATTLE WAGON OF PERFECTION
Titan Marine in San Diego put together a team to design and build a new class of luxury boats. The team embarked on a mission to build a highly-competitive boat for offshore tournament fishing. Combining luxury and comfort, the boat would offer speed and stability suitable for fishing for Marlin, swordfish, sailfish, or tuna. It would be suitable for fishing in all Pacific and Atlantic coastal waters, with the speed to serve East Coast fishing plus the large bait tank capacity, fish-holding freezer, and anchoring system necessary for West Coast operations. High quality would be the signature of this new class structure, electronics, accommodations, fishing gear, and all other aspects of the design and function. The first of the class of competitive offshore fishing yachts is "C-BANDIT".
"C-BANDIT'" is in pristine condition and her well known West-Coast Captain has maintained her since new!
Hauled, Bottom Painted, Surveyed, Engines Serviced March of 2016!
The interior of "C-BANDIT" is a huge living space. In an unusual layout, the salon just inside the door from the cockpit is actually a huge family room with a large dining table. More rod storage in salon for both conventional and bent butt rods. On either side of the entry door are additional tackle lockers and drawers. Custom door that may be opened or partially to any degree needed. The raised galley just forward is separated from the salon by a entertainment center and half-height bulkhead containing a serving buffet counter and storage. On the port side is a comfortable over-stuffed lounging chair.
Facing aft and on the port side you will find the control panel for the majority of the boats systems. Here is the control for both generators, both watermakers, tank readings and one of two Octoplex touchscreen control panels to control everything from lighting to bait pumps.
The entire interior is air conditioned by two 4-ton compressors providing 96,000 BTU's of chilling and heating with Marine air controls in every living space.
Forward to port is a built in seat and forward of that is the large wet-bar. Under the bar is a commercial grade icemaker, and ample storage for everything you would need to entertain guests.
Just before stepping up into the galley to starboard is the entertainment center featuring a 55" Samsung LCD television, KVH satellite receiver, and Sony Amplifier with surround.
Next to the entertainment center is an ICOM Command mic VHF, Furuno RD-30 repeater, and located in a cabinet underneath is a PC with scanner and printer.
Forward and stepping up from the salon is the commercial quality galley which features fabulous attention to detail, including top of the line appliances a wine cooler, walk-in pantry, Corian countertops, Sub-Zero under-counter refrigeration, Kitchen-Aid range with oven, stainless bread drawers and generous storage.
Facing aft is a huge counter space with two under-counter Kitchen-Aid refrigerators and two Kitchen-Aid freezers. To the starboard side is a dual sink with an Insinkerator on-demand hot water spigot.
Facing forward is the large stainless steel Kitchen-Aid range with oven. To the left of the range are two stainless steel bread drawers.
To the Port side is a large counter space with two Sub-Zero undercounter refrigerators. Sub-Zero refrigeration
Moving forward to the three full staterooms, the master being midship. Just before master there is a closet which houses the Artisian stackable Washer/Dryer unit. Just to port is a full head with large shower.
Stepping down and aft, is the full-beam master, with a King-size berth. Just aft is the large ensuite head with Vacuflush toilet, shower, Corian countertops.Because of the head being aft of the master stateroom, the engine noise level is very low in the master.
On the port side and aft of the berth is a huge walk-in closet with a door that allows easy access to plumbing and electrical runs on the side of the boat.
Forward and to starboard of the Master is a stateroom that features two bunks with storage underneath both.
All the way towards the bow is the VIP stateroom with a queen berth, full entertainment system and en-suite head with shower. Very good headroom and stateroom size because of the design of a large bow compartment (stateroom is aft more than most yachts).
Under the VIP is the bow bilge compartment. Inside houses the Sidepower Bowthruster and (2) group 27 batteries with their own dedicated Newmar Charger. There is also a 2000 GPH Rule bilge pump and the Jabsco Baitpump for the Bow bait tank and Tubes.
"C-Bandit's" pilothouse provides amazing amount of space for guest seating with hidden rod storage beneath all the settees. Beautiful Pompanette Platinum series helm chairs and a Burlwood helm with a full complement of Furuno NavNet 3D plotting and radar system which can be displayed on any display, as can the FCV-1200 sounder, CH-250 sidescan sonar, and the 96 mile Furuno X-Band ARPA radar has its own dedicated display.
The vessel's pilothouse was designed and built so that the helm chairs is at the perfect level for visibility for fishing and cruising.
There is a Flir Voyager thermal camera as well as multiple engineroom and cockpit cameras connected and controlled via an IRIS surveillance system.
All the way to the port side of the dash is the large Octoplex touchscreen to control lighting, pumps, and electronics. Redundancy is everywhere onboard and there is a Furuno GP-32 Wass GPS and a RD-30 repeating display as well.
"C-BANDIT" has Seastar hydraulic steering powered of both main engines as well as a Simrad AP-35 with Pump for autopilot control.
Engine systems are monitored via Caterpillar displays and are controlled electronically with ZF controls.
Despite the radical curves in the glass flybridge windows, they remain distortion-free giving you incredible visibility!
The skybridge is a very well thought out use of space and you will appreciate "C-Bandits" terrific ladders to both the pilothouse and the skybridge that you can negotiate forward or backward with equal ease, even with a rod in one hand. Visibility if fantastic, no problem seeing the bow and stern clearly despite the triple Pompanette captains chairs. There is also the full array of electronics. The Flybridge is what makes C-Bandit a superb Sportfishers. The height is that same as any other full tower sportfishers.
The unique design permits a massive 320-square-foot cockpit and extremely large aft Pilothouse deck loaded with custom features providing unparalleled visibility aft. A huge low profile live bait tank. Teak Release Marine rocket launcher when fighting chair not needed. Lower station, observation seating, special designed adjustable salon door, day head behind one of two custom designed stainless ladders to upper deck. All fit nicely in the huge 317 square feet cockpit, the largest of any fishing yacht in its class.
A lightweight carbon-fiber transom gate opens wide enough to handle a 600 plus fish. The under-gunwale gaff lockers accommodate rigged flying gaffs. "C-Bandit" sports four hawseholes in the stern for greater flexibility at the dock. Live-bait tubes in the swim platform double as livewells or fish boxes. In all, "C-Bandit" boasts 16 live-bait tubes. Baitwell flow can be rerouted through numerous redundant pumping systems if one pump should fail. Centerline in the cockpit are the low-profile livewells. The forward tank is a massive 270 gallons and the aft tank is 120 gallons. Please note that both bait tanks are set lower than the cockpit to get the weight down to the bottom of the vessel. On both sides of the tanks are 12 Release Marine rocket launchers. At the very aft end of the tank, is the mount for the Release Marine fighting chair. Keeping the chair high and on a swivel really gives the angler great visibility over the fish they are on, as well as a better line angle.
In keeping up with West Coast fishing methods, there are smaller integral wells on the bow as well.
Up to the deck, you will find teak decking and a full day-head with shower. Aft is a hidden Electra-Chef stainless steel BBQ with storage below.
Release Marine supplied the rod holders - seemingly hundreds of them around the cockpit and across the back of the pilothouse deck. A bait-prep station is in the shade and there is a handy bait freezer, rigging sink and cutting board.
"C-Bandit" displays one of the prettiest lines ever. She rests on a solid fiberglass bottom, with Kevlar and composite construction from the waterline up to the gunwale, and carbon-fiber laminate topsides. For the quiet ride, Titan sandwiches Nida-Core into the interior structure along with 1,033 pounds of assorted acoustical composites. Every painted surface is coated with Alexseal paints.
She was designed by a very reputable crew including the famous Tom Fexas, Marine Naval Architect.
Titan Marine did an exceptional job in the design this spacious engine compartment. Attention to detail for each and every piece of equipment and all in their proper place. As you walk all the way around the engines you notice the compressors and large tool chest mounted outboard of the power plants. Equipment that is used or serviced often is up front with easy access. "C-Bandit" uses two generators a 22 and 33kw and located the batteries, fuel and water all low on centerline for maximum stability.
Running up the sidedecks you will find heavy highly polished stainless steel railings, 1-1/2 inches thick by 32-inches high, extend aft all the way to the cockpit. Wide stairs on each side of the cockpit lead to the 12-inch walkways up each side of the boat, with a minimum of 2- ½ inches cap rail to prevent slipping off the boat.
Stanchions intentionally placed every 42 inches to provide a rail sturdy enough to lean against while walking to the bow for safety.
Also allowing anyone who might slip on the foredeck to grab the sturdy stanchions and avoid going overboard.
Usually an ignored space on sportfishers – even those the size of "C-BANDIT" – her bow is designed to include flexibility, feasibility and functionality to capitalize on the often forgotten immense space. Integrated fiberglass bow pulpit with waist-high railing and toe-rail, providing an additional measure of safety for anchoring or battling that big one. Completely covered with Flexiteek, easy-care teak material boat decking adding beauty and durability.
Chain Locker features Muir Vertical 4000 Windless with 200-feet of 7/16 galvanized chain and 300-feet of nylon rope with ample storage for fenders, covers and miscellaneous gear discreetly hidden below deck.
A pair of unobtrusive 39-foot Tournament Ruppriggers™ made-for-action design with triple spreaders placed well above the walkway on both sides of the house provide unobstructed access when moving to the bow.
There are five custom cleats conveniently spaced from bow to stern on both sides
"From the hull up this vessel was painstakingly designed to meet the owner/builder perfectionist personality. Even the lines on the boat were designed using a robot that worked on spaceships and airplanes, giving the TITAN 75 its unique, modern look." PCS
"She's built by a fisherman for a fisherman" - Rick Krug, TITAN G.M.
"Because of the composites we've used on this boat, it's 20,000 to 30,000 pounds lighter than other boats its size" - TITAN
"It's very maneuverable for its size and is a really nice ride. It's a nice hull and a good engine package with high-quality electronics, walk-around capability and speed. It's very fishable." - Capt. Rich Hamilton
