New double console

We are just starting to produce a double console that may suit you. Its designed for narrower boats, rather than the wide beam RIBs. The throttle is centre-mount, so would be easier to reach from a standing position. Width of instrument facia is 870mm, but the base is narrower, to give more foot-room. There are some CAD images here: http://www.eco-marine.co.uk/consolesandseats.html

Sorry no photos yet - the first console will come out of the mould next week.

It just appeals to my symmetrical tidy mind. Probably a case of mild OCD.
