"Une prise de quai ... alimentera l’ensemble du tableau des servitudes du bord."

electrical panel
Explanation:
Switchboard is the correct meaning, I think, but yachties tend to talk about the "electrical panel" onboard, as in "power from the dock will fully supply the onboard electrical panel."

Even better would be "house electrical panel" in fact.

I'm quit new to this and not sure if this is where I should comment on the glossary suggestion, but I found that the initial suggestion was not something you would ever here in the marine industry in which I work on a number of documents, not as a translation for tableau des servitudes de bord, in any case, which is quite a straightforward term. I think onboard electrical panel is closer to the original sense.

Thanks for confirming "switchboard" as not meaning something operated by telephonists (which is what it makes me think of). A watchful guardian angel who's, sadly, been banished from this forum supplied the answer that I'm posting in the glossary.
