Adding a bowsprit

I am looking to purchase a Helia 44 very soon. I would like to have a bowsprit and furling scretcher. I found a couple lately that I've been interested in, but they don't have a bowsprit.
Is it possible to purchase and fit the FP bowsprit post factory?
Has anybody done this?
Do you know the cost?
Is it easy enough to fit?

No you cannot refit the FP bowsprit.
The solution I know and will go is the aftermarket kit: https://www.forespar.com/products/sa...prit-kit.shtml
You should get a foldable one to avoid extra berthing costs, 1 or 2 ft extra length is a lot money for berthing a cat.
