I Have A 96 Searay Laguna And The Sun Has Taken Its Toll On The Plastic Dash Panel,.... Who Makes New Ones???? I Have Not Check The Dealer Yet, Thought Maybe There Was A Company That Re-Cut New Ones For Different Boat Companys.... I Could Make The Outside Cuts, But The Switches Are The Square Hole Rockers And They Are Even-ly Spaced....
I've seen this site talked about..... http://frontpanelexpress.com/

Call thunder marine, ask for Dave in service. He had a new dash made up for me, looks like factory...don't know who he used but it was a great job. Check out the THT link to see pics of the dash.

If you are in the Melbourne area...check out Boat House Discount. They buy a lot of manufacturer over runs. It's been a few years but last time I was in there I remember an aisle full of panels from different OEM's. Might be a hit or miss thing but there were panels stacked deep in there...I do remember seeing some Sea Ray panels.

Dash. Make your own. Starboard material. Works great.
The last time I made one I used mohogany. Also looks great.

Make your own, all it takes is a hole saw and a piece of material that meets your specs. Starboard, plywood, fiberglass, whatever.

There is a surplus company out of Melbourne Fla that has lots of Sea Ray stuff along with many other items from other manufacturers of boats and engines. Ken has great prices and great to work with.

for the price that Scott C charges you would be crazy to make your own.
he makes them from corrosion proof materials, most of the others are aluminum.
he back lites them with LEDs if needed.
He pre-wires all of it- its plug and play, your new panel will be installed in minutes.
He uses waterproof switches and circuit breakers or fuses.
He will make the thing in whatever size and shape and configuration you want.
And he is a gentleman to deal with and has a VERY quick turn-around.
