Switch Panel Projects

We’ve literally built thousands of completely custom marine grade switch panels.  See below for a small selection of those.

If you see a panel and would like to have something similar made for you, please contact us with the panel number shown below and what modifications you you’d like to see.

Because A: we don’t care if our competitors know what our prices are.  We build a superior product with superior customer service. So we don’t try and hide it.

But mostly because we want to give you a rough idea of what you’re getting yourself into.  Please don’t fixate on the estimates though, we have a wide range of options and pricing.  Give us a call with your specs and we’re happy to get you real numbers.

In general, cost of the panel will vary close to that range depending on wiring, and heat shrink options you choose.  Read more about these options here.

15. 15 Switch Panel on White

  • White
  • Etched/Backlit rockers (white lights)
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Logo and pinstripe engravings
  • Instrument Cutouts

This customer needed a large, odd shaped, dash panel that he could mount some large Garmins into.  He also wanted to highlight the boat name.

We convinced him to try a pinstripe to break up the white panel on white fiberglass, and it really came out great.

Approx Cost: $725 – $1000

14. 9 Switch Panel on Brushed Silver

  • Brushed Silver
  • Etched/Backlit rockers (white lights)
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Logo and pinstripe engravings

This switch panel was a lot of fun.  This customer wanted something really snazzy for his Blazer boat, and their spot tail logo was really nice.

We used a large logo and ran it off the edge of the panel – and “under” the switches – and we thought it really came out looking cool!

We also added a pinstripe boarder to this one.  That’s a little retro look normally, but combined with the logo etchings ended up looking awesome.

Approx Cost: $475 – $650

13. 12 Switch Panel on White C/F

  • White Carbon Fiber
  • Etched/Backlit rockers (white lights)
  • Circuit Breakers
  • 2 gauge holes
  • 12V Socket
  • Backlit Pro Line logo

This example Pro Line boats switch panel shows how our backlit logos look in the zoomed view.

Note on this panel how the one switch has the bottom lens illuminated.  That is the indicator light, and as each switch is turned on, the light comes on as an indicator.

Approx Cost: $575 – $800

  • Brushed Silver
  • Etched Rockers – Blue LED backlights
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Ignition and kill switch holes
  • Black Pursuit logo
  • USB Charger

This customer opted for blue LED rocker switches.  You can’t tell until the lights are on (see below).

We also added pre-cut holes for his ignition and kill switch.

Approx Cost: $650 – $900

This customer (James) was super great to work with.  We actually did another small panels for him since.  Here’s what he had to say:

“You and your guys have been great to work with on both projects.  I wish more companies were as phenomenal to deal with as you have been. Everyone who has seen the panel loves it and asks who made it.  They really like the blue back lighting, no one has seen that before.  Thanks again for everything, you have a customer for life and I will tell everyone looking for this type of product the go to place is New Wire Marine.”

He was kind enough to send us a few shots of the installed product as well.  Thank you James!

BACKLIGHTS ON

As you can see in the second image, this was taken in pretty much broad daylight, and the backlights are still quite bright.  If this was to be used a lot at night, and the panel was higher on the helm than James’ was, we would recommend a dimmer.

  • Brushed Silver
  • Printed Rockers – Red Lens
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Gauge, ignition and switch holes
  • 12V Socket

This customer was nice enough to send us a before and after shot… which we really appreciate!  Thanks Jerry!

You can see, not only is the appearance improved, but he’s able to run both MFD’s now, AND has the advantage of backlit rockers that can be used easily at night.

6. 9 Switch on White C/F

  • White Carbon Fiber
  • Etched/Backlit Rockers
  • Circuit Breakers

White Carbon Fiber print looks great.  You can see the pattern pretty well in this shot.

This customer opted for no symbols, just backlit text.  You can see how easy this would be to read in the dark.

Approx Cost: $375 – $525

This panel could almost be build with our E-Panel Builder and save some coin… if it wasn’t for the custom labels.

5. 15 Switch on White C/F

  • White Carbon Fiber
  • Etched/Backlit Rockers
  • Circuit Breakers
  • 12V Socket

If height space is scarce on your boat, we’ll often use this method of inserting the breakers in between each switch.

Doing it this way we can get the overal panel height down to about 2 3/4″.

Approx Cost: $575 – $850

4. 16 Switch on Brushed Ebony

  • Brushed Ebony
  • Blue push button and red LED rockers
  • Odd shape / gauge cutouts
  • Illuminated / Backlit text

Bocatech push button switches in action.  This is a good example of the complexity of shape and design we can achieve.

This particular panel even had ballast tank control rockers, which reversed polarity on the valves, with a built in “open” indicator light in red.

Approx Cost: $1100 – $1300
