The Ocean Breeze has the lower helm on the Starboard side with the flybridge being centred.
Coming into my Oceanside property the dock is on the port-side unless I back in. Once the Marina is built I will have to do a Y ( back out and head forward between the wharf and break-water ) manoeuvre if I face in or will have to do a C manoeuvre if I dock backing in.
I prefer to dock using the lower helm but using the flybridge is as comfortable for me.
I have found that many places I pull in while out on excursions I dock with the wharf on the starboard. Again, it doesn't really matter which side I dock on, all is about the same for me.
You know it never ever cross my mind why different boats switch with the helm to either port or starboard but I guess it all has to do with layout preferences from the designers.
Our Tolly stations are FB CL / Salon Stbd, next to slider door. Have had several boats... Majority had same set up as our Tolly. 31'. Uni (2nd pict) was port in salon, but that never bothered me cause I always like to pilot from bridge. O/b's and ski boat are/were all stbd. I prefer stbd to port in salon and CL on bridge.

Both wheelhouse and aft station to port. This was the "working side" when operating as a commercial vessel. The hull is heavily reinforced on the port side where the pot hauler used to be. Reverse prop walk is to port also which makes for easy reversing into the berth using the aft station.
As with many TTs, our Formosa bridge wheel is centerline and lower is starboard (hydraulic steering). We have side deck doors both P & S (as well as aft) and bulwark doors P & S as well as a transom door so docking and access is good from either side.
