I need a carabiner for boats lifting. The boat (j/24) weight will be 1500 kg. So need to be a carabiner that takes at least 15KN of working load. This one says that it will hold 24KN at the direction that I need. Since it is made for climbing. The project idea is for impact. Not exactly a working load idea ... But can I trust it for the need I have?

Pretty much all of the climbing biners are rated really high to handle an impact fall, which generates way more stress than holding a weight. Do what the others said and get some cheap steel locking carabiners. They'll be plenty strong and save you some $$.
