Engine won't start

I have a 33' Challenger Sloop sailboat in which I recently had work done on the engine at it was starting perfectly! Then I did not turn in on for a few weeks and when I attempted to start it, absolutely nothing happened. The engine did not attempt to even turnover or make a sound (also gauges aren't working either). I Both batteries are fully charged.

I feel like this is something simple like a switch getting accidentally flipped off or a fuse going out. Only problem is that I'm completely unfamiliar with this boat and haven't found anything yet to resolve this issue. Any help that keeps me from spending more money to get someone out to fix it, I would be extremely grateful

Re: Engine won't start

Basic trouble shooting 101. Start at the battery with a meter or a light bulb and 2 wires. See where it all comes to an end.
