Yes, it is possible... then again, you could put a bowsprit on a Searay... but without more information, it isn't reasonable to expect any more detailed an answer than that.

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.

It is possible, but it will change the balance of the rig. Move the center of effort forward and she'll be hard to keep on the wind.
All sailing is about balance.
