Where can plastic flush mount box enclosures for a battery switch for the center console be purchased?

Marine electrical equipment is generally available at most ship's stores.

Check out Carlon products, they make PVC boxes and conduit for the electrical trades, most any Electrical supply house such as Graybar will handle them..............Jack

I'm curious as to why a box is required? Why not just mount
the switch in the console?

Chuck,

I'm trying to give it that custom look on the outside lower front part of the console along with easy access to the battery switch.

Good idea to keep that switch as dry as possible. If not protected, you have problems with corrosion. Are your batteries in console? I've been taught to keep the switch as close as possible to the batteries. Regulator isolator ($) or paralllel battery switches ($$) are what many are now installing, in my area.
