Yeah, you can buy retro-fit systems. It's like another yoke that the outboard sits over. They pop-up on Ebay, usually in the States, not cheap though.

At risk of doubling the weight on your transom!

Search for the many "retro fitting PT" type threads on here... I can assure you you;re not the first to have asked this Q!

Bit like turning 2-wheel drive into 4-wheel drive. Less hassle all-round will be to sell privately then purchase a new or second hand engine with electric power trim and tilt. With 4m boat, it can't be much bigger than 50hp. I know with Yamahas, that the ram units do come up for sale occasionally.
