STATIONARY DAVIT CRANESAlthough any Thern davit crane model can be mounted on your boat, ship or platform, the Captain Series 571-572 (1500 lb. capacity) and 572 (2200 lb. capacity) are the most popular crane used on tug boats all over the world because they provide extended height, extended reach and smooth 360° rotation while loading supplies and equipment. The Captain series cranes are available in manual or power winch operation. An optional ratchet style screw-jack can be added for precise boom adjustment from 45° to 90°.

Designed for permanent installation and smooth rotation, the Captain 1500 provides extended height and reach, and still only requires a 6″ concrete floor for installation.
