The panel is as described on the product description, and more: tough metal panel body; heavy, well separated power rails; quality breakers (and just as important, quality screws and recesses that hold tight to the panel/rails--more resistant to vibrating loose); tight, vibration and corrosion resistant wire to rail screws and posts--good stuff. I don't know if this panel is the best, but I don't know how one would make any substantial improvement to how or with what ease it functions without making it something else. Even on Amazon, it's not cheap and (thus, as often) it's not cheaply made. The central point where multiple AC circuits meet (and vibrate) and are controlled---on the WATER, with widely varying temperatures with inconsistent power supplied by the dock--is a [bold] very awful place to use a cheaply constructed control panel.
The build quality is superb; this is true of the panel itself, the power rails, the breakers, screws, labels, everything. Realize that you get the main breaker and three 15 amp breakers to power independent circuits--not six breakers. Three slots are open (vacant) for additional breakers if you need them. If you don't, then don't take the tabs out and don't wire the indicator lights on those slots.
Unless you know precisely what you are doing, seek a professional. The instruction manual gives the "basics," but that term is relative; Blue Sea must assume you know the most basic basics or you wouldn't be wiring AC on the water. I looked some things up online (and took some notes) before turning off (and locking up) the dock breaker--or even opening the package. Therefore, the instructions don't tell you anything about how to prepare a wire for installing on the breaker, how grounding works and why it must be right, how (specifically) to wire the indicator lights, how to cut out the area where it is to be installed--it only tells the size, etc.). The "manual" is no more than a sheet of laminated and neatly folded paper which says nothing about the basics of being an electrician (much less of being a boat electrician--different animal).
If anything changes, I will *definitely* update this positive review. If you check my other reviews, I argue the flaws as I see them, and I do feel obliged to post candidly because I rely so much on others' posts in my decisions to buy.
I can't find any flaws here, and it still costs less than my home security system.
I hope this helps you.
