Design, Manufacture & Supply of New API Cranes

Rabutec is now capable of supplying new API 2C marine cranes. This is made possible as a result of our partnership with an established marine cranes manufacturer, Elevating Boats LLC (EBI).

EBI has been manufacturing offshore marine cranes since 1963. Since the beginning, their offshore cranes have been designed and manufactured to be;

  • Rugged in design, built with simplicity and serviceability in mind
  • Competitive in Cost
  • Low in Maintenance
  • High precision, high production cranes exemplifying safety, versatility, convenience and value.
  • Meet or exceeds all API and OSHA Standards

All EBI offshore pedestal-mounted cranes are certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and can be modified to any specifications or classification a customer requests. Other offshore marine crane classifications that EBI Cranes has acquired for models of offshore marine cranes are ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), Lloydes Register, and Bureau Veritas.

EBI offers high level of customization to meet client’s specific lifting requirements. EBI has three offshore pedestal-mounted cranes designs;

  • Lattice boom
  • Telescopic boom
  • Fixed boom

Lattice Boom Marine Cranes – a lattice boom marine crane allows you to have a lighter boom to load ration. With a lighter boom weight, you’re able to lift heavier loads. Lift and handle heavier loads with EBI’s lattice boom offshore pedestal-mounted cranes.

Telescopic Boom Marine Cranes – a telescopic offshore marine crane allows you to have a longer reach on a vessel. Being able to retract the telescopic boom with EBI outer telescopic gearboxes, allows you store it easier on the deck of your vessel yielding more space on the deck. Make the reach of your lift without compromising the space of your offshore supply vessel with EBI’s telescopic boom marine crane.

Fixed Boom Marine Cranes – a more affordable and easier to maintain, EBI’s fixed boom pedestal crane is more durable and has less moving parts. EBI’s fixed boom pedestal crane is the perfect solution for standard, ordinary lifting & handling needs. A fixed boom marine crane works faster and is mostly used to transport groceries and smaller, more ordinary lifting & handling purposes.

EBI marine cranes can be used as liftboat cranes, ship cranes, dockside cranes, platform cranes, and more. EBI Marine cranes users are of various industries; oil & gas, marines, petrochemical, shipyards, military, and many more.
