Its easy DIY to do (assuming a double skin floor). Console, steering and control box all off the shelf to match engine and boat length. With new parts you are looking around 500, used parts can reduce that by half.

But putting a console in a 340 hugely reduces the floor area. From easily being able to carry 5 or 6 people, 3 becomes a squash.

I've got a 2 person centre console here that would be ideal for an Avon 340. It's a Brig one, unused. Let me know if it's of interest to you.

Looking for 300. No steering with it but otherwise identical to the one in the pic. It's in Carms. Could arrange pallet delivery at cost.
