    Your local,hardware or auto parts store probably can provide you with a workable solution, take the existing one out and shop for a similar one.
    It’s not likely that the manufacturer has installed a switch so unique that it cannot be replaced with an aftermarket one.

    Any cheap old school ignition from the auto parts store will work.

    You can buy a cheap one labeled marine, but it will be the same thing.

    You can also call a locksmith and have a key made
