panel switch


Explanation:
More context would have helped. What sort of boat is it, for example?

There are lots of "tableaux" on a boat, among which are the following possibilities :

- tableau de bord (instrument panel)
- tableau de charge (charging panel)
- tableau de commande (control panel)
- tableau de contrôle ( board, panel
- tableau de feux de route (navigating lights board)
- tableau électrique (switchboard)
- tableau principal ( main switchboard)

Given the order of words "interrupteur tableau", your term suggests the switch for a panel, rather than a panel of switches ; thus not a switchboard but rather a panel switch
