Looks like Openockpits have relased a 737 yoke, wrong colour but i dont mind too much. Semms reasonably priced compared to ACE and PFC.

Check out simujlabs dual link yokes. Seems pretty reasonably priced too --

Been looking deeper. The simujabs yoke is fiber and resin built. The ACE yoke got an OK review but the decals were bad (http://www.flaps2approach.com/journal/2011/12/14/ace-b737-yoke-column-review.html)

The ace yoke is built like a tank (I had same yoke owned by the flaps2approach author, bought 3rd hand) but I would caution doing business with that company.

I have heard bad things about them, but Aviation Magestore has a 737 one in stock. My only concern is fitting it between the FDS rudder pedals. Your photo has slightly different pedals then mine and I think I would need to fit the yoke between the metal rudder floor.

Could you measure the distance between the yoke columns? If I roder the linked Simujabs yokes I'll probably have to change the width of the yokes.
