It is a crane to lift engines and boilers in and out of ships.

Thanks for that.

Would still be in use in a country of canals and waterways I presume.

I was wrong, it isn’t a crane for lifting engines and boilers out of ships, but it is a crane for ships. The ships would be partially lifted, so that the rudders or the propellers could be repaired. The crane dates from 1928. It is a monument now, as the company Straatman moved to an industrial estate.
