Port Engine won't crank

Took a nice cruise today, anchored out and relaxed on a perfect summer afternoon. When I went to start the engines and pull up anchor, the port side would not crank at all(Yanmar 240). I get the proper voltage on the gauge so it doesn't seem like a battery issue. Any ideas are welcomed and appreciated.

Voltage at the battery?
Could be a faulty neutral switch, we had that happen on a charter boat once.
Or faulty ignition switch (s)

I do not know for sure if this represents your Yanmar start circuit.
Temporarily jump the B+ terminal to the S terminal with a jumper wire to prove the solenoid and starter motor work.
