Good electric start outboard?

Does anyone recommend a good electric start outboard for a 25'' Sailboat (Triton)? My mother loves to sail, but her shoulder isn''t doing well and her doctor recommends no more pull starting. It seems hard to find a smaller outboard (about 10 HP) that has electric start.

Thanks.

Suzuki and Mercury each have a 9.9HP electric start outboard that has a 20-inch shaft. Don''t get a 15-inch shaft.

My 25 footer has a Yamaha four stroke model T8HPZ or something like that. It was purchased in 2001 or 2002. Electric start, power tilt, long shaft, high thrust prop. Probably one of the best outboards you could get for a pocket cruiser, although it''s a bit on the heavy side (over 100#) Yamaha seems to have the best rep for reliability among current outboard makers.
