20 hp outboard: Yamaha or Tohatsu

I just got a new dinghy, a Highfield CL 310. Now I'm looking for a new outboard for it. I want a manual pull start, EFI, 4 stroke, either 15 or 20 hp, but most likely 20 hp.
Cruising area is currently the Chesapeake, but will include East Coast, Florida, Bahamas and Caribbean.

Any significant advantages or disadvantages for Yamaha and Tohatsu brands?
Im considering things like reliability, parts availability and dealer network, weight, etc.

Thanks in advance for advice from experience.
