Here's the vendor of that: Ankarspel Badplattform Badstege LED Peke | BŚtsystem

What did you have in mind, what is your ideal outcome, and what are you willing to do in the way of making changes?

You might find some ideas here:

My boat has a fairly narrow foredeck and roller furling...and I was able to put a bow roller in that has worked quite well for the last three seasons.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Advice on anchor roller design

I'm in the same situation: I have an Albin 7.9, with roller furling installed right at the point of the bow. There's no room underneath, and very little to either side (a little more than enough to run the chain through). I've though about fastening a wooden platform to the foredeck, installing bollards to control the movement of the chain and rode, and mounting a conventional roller, but wood rots, and there's little surface area to fasten the platform to. An alternative is to have one built out of stainless. Yet another is to mount one to one side or the other, but aft of the furler, which would mean having the anchor stick out some distance to the side - that doesn't seem very safe. I wouldn't mind seeing some other ways of dealing with this.
