Wanted new switches for electrical panel

Looking to replace the original push button switches with NEW ones. For the look and ease of changeout, want to stay original. Very open to other ideas if anyone has a better fix! Does anyone have a lead on where to get new switches ?
We are in the early stag of learning our boat and making a hit list. Yes, the checking off of the punch list.
Still learning to navigate the site too. Maybe new ideas or vendors to reach out to for Bahia stuff.
Does anyone have a list of vendors for parts in the USA for the Fountaine stuff?
Would love to see and hear about what you've done to make your boat more user friendly and FUN !
Thanks,
John413

Re: Wanted new switches for electrical panel

I haven't tried to source the 12v circuit breakers yet, but probably have the same as you. I have 2 or 3 spares in the stores, will look to see if I can ascertain manufacturer. I haven't had any fail.

Re: Wanted new switches for electrical panel

The circuit breakers are the 2-5700-iG11 series from E-T-A in Germany. I see 5A, 12A, and 16A in use on my panel, but I can only see a few without tearing the panel apart so there are probably other ratings also.

It looks like both Allied and Newark have them in the US, probably others if you search more. I found a few on Ebay.

Thermal Circuit Breakers | Circuit Breakers | Newark | Results

E-T-A Circuit Protection and Control - 2-5700-IG1-P10-3.5A - Circuit Protection - Circuit Breaker - Allied Electronics
E-T-A Circuit Protection and Control - 2-5700-IG1-P10-DD-5A - Circuit Protection - Circuit Breaker - Allied Electronics
E-T-A Circuit Protection and Control - 2-5700-IG1-P10-15A - Circuit Protection - Circuit Breaker - Allied Electronics
