One thing which may temp you to electric start is if you want any elctronics (nav, lights, depth, fixed vhf) then you need battery etc so if not a lot of extra go for electric start (that size probably has elec and pull) in a solid hull it makes more sense than a SIB...

Don't think PTT is available on the yam 20 but looks like it is on the tohatsu http://www.tohatsu.co.uk/tohatsu-mfs20.htm looks nice and has 5 year warranty too

Wise words, the last thing you want to be doing is adding unnecessary bits & bobs that overcomplicate things😏
