Madera Ribs will build anything; they have put cranes on many of their larger ribs. Looking at that Redbay, that's not a particularly powerful crane if it only lifts 150kg. Big jetskis nowadays weigh up to 490kg.

150kg at the end of that long lever is alot on a small boat, even directly over the stern.

The crane will lift over 500kgs but the stuff we are lifting is mostly in the 150kg+ region !

Fair enough; that's impressive given how long the boom is as CaptnJack said. And yes, Ribcraft will fit cranes to their larger ribs. I was talking to them a while back on this subject.
