Have not done those but did a SeaWise davit on a previous boat and absolutely loved it. Not cheap but very well made. A breeze to launch and recover the dinghy. Also still able to use most of the swim platform.
 
Not aftermarket, but ours came with a GHS hydraulic platform, similar to a TNT. Works OK.

Were it me, I'd have looked first at Freedom Lift, which appears to be able to raise the dinghy higher and doesn't add as huge an amount of footage to the overall boat length... or Presto which apparently is all installed above the existing swim platform, no hardware in the water.
