It sounds like an electrical relay problem to me. Had the same issue with my 2004 Merc 225 Optimax. When the relay burned out, motor would crank (turn over) but would not fire. Sounds like yours has done that. I've actually got two spares in my boat now cause it's happened again.
Went into a marina for lunch, came out and it would crank over but never start or even try to fire. Change out the relay and started right up and has been running fine now for 4 months. It sounds like you aren't getting spark if it was running fine before, doesn't sound like a fuel delivery problem.
