What class is this Boat?

Please Help! I have recently gotten this monohull one design back to working condition. It has sat out in the elements uncovered for four years. I can't seem to find out what class it is. If anyone knows what type of boat this is, that would be great. Thank you!

Pretty sure that's an MFG bandit 17. Or at least that logo on the sail says it is. I have a bandit 15.

Enjoy her, I love mine. The 15 is a neat little boat with a lot of big race boat features. Roller furling headsail, spinnaker launching chute, internal halyards led to the cockpit.

I had to think long and hard why that logo looked so familiar. Then it dawned on me, it's cause I've looked up at it hundreds of times.

Check this site: Hull ID Numbers - BoatSafe.com

The Hull ID Number (HIN) should be found on the transom of your boat. It will tell you who made your vessel and when.

Hi I have that boat Bandit 17 and I'm curious if you are still sailing it?
I'd been looking around on line to see what people do to them to get it a little more responsive.


I'd added a masthead spinnaker, bowsprit, tweaker for jib and replaced centerboard with daggerboard among almost all the hardware.


It's been an awesome lake boat and have a lot of fun.


Cheers.

I have one and was recently looking on line to see if any other ones exist.
I've done a pile of work to it and changed and added a few exciting things.
Just about to add new sails for next year.

Re: What class is this Boat?

I too have a Bandit 17 that I recently acquired. The mast tabernacle and compression post are missing, and a gaping hole is where the mast tabernacle (base) should be. I think I will be able to fix it after I get the parts. If either of you could post some pictures of the mast base from above and below, that would be great! Thanks!

Did you fix it?
I didn't have any photos as boat is 500kms away.
I just broke mast, so unsure if I can sail it anymore as new is cost of boat and finding old mast gives same issue. another old boat to dispose of.

I haven't fixed it yet, but I have a good plan I think. I hope to get started next week. Sorry to hear about your Bandit. I wonder if weakness in the mast is a design issue? Anyway, I'll let you know when I get it put together and ready to sail. Thanks again!

HAHA no the mast is actually quite beefy said the boat rigger I tried to find a new mast with.
Problem was, I turbo'd the boat with a Carbon fibre centre board, new rudder and a mast head asym spinnaker from a 19' racing cat.
The mast never had a chance when the boat popped out and starting skipping across the water down wind. My big mistake was not adding spreader or backstay to my mods. However that was the best 60 seconds of sailing I've had! Was pretty wild solo.

Sadly for Das Boot I found a bigger and better boat. Unsure if I can find a buyer for it without mast.

I chopped my mast into 3 pieces to get it back home.
I could send you a piece that's not bent.
You'd have to pay for shipping of course.

Re: What class is this Boat?

Dang dude! You're braver than me! As a novice who will be on the Puget Sound (far south) mostly, I plan on being pretty boring with the original setup sailwise. I have read that the original setup is a bit boring unless there is a stiff wind. Not sure if that is true. I will be dealing with tides so I don't need any added excitement at this point. I have what appears to be a perfectly good mast so I'll decline your offer on the mast. Hope your new sailboat give you lots of fun and adventure this summer!
