Did you know that you can order a totally custom Thern davit crane? We offer some popular options on our site to make purchasing fast and easy, but you can order something totally custom to suit your specific needs! Here are a few things to keep in mind when placing an order with us.

  • The images we show for davit cranes are only representative images. While some may be perfectly accurate, some may vary a little from the actual product being offered. The reason for this is simple...we just don't have a unique product image for every davit crane and winch combo available.
  • Order your wire rope assembly and base separately. We offer several base style and several wire rope options for each winch. So, for example, if you order a Commander 5PT10M1 you are getting the davit crane with the M1 winch configuration. BUT, you still need to order a separate base and wire rope assembly.
  • Most Thern davit cranes are built to order and are not returnable. Please be aware of this when you place your order. Double check your measurements, specifications and lifting requirements first.
  • For most davit cranes you have the choice between a manual or electric winch. And even if you want a manual winch, you can pick up a drill-motor drive to make operating the winch easier (select models only).
  • Call or email us! Really, we are happy to help you make the right decision and get the right product the first time.
