Rubber Faucet Diffuser

When I purchased my boat, the galley faucet, which is a simple foot powered spout, had a slip over rubber/metal diffuser on it. The spout itself is probably only around a 1/4" wide. The diffuser flared out to around 2". My existing one is dried out and cracked. I kinda liked having it but have been unsuccessful in finding any for sale. Does anyone know where I could find something similar? Thanks.

Nothing special here! I have one exactly like it on my laundry sink at home. Adapts to various faucet diameters. Try the plumbing section in any of the big home improvement stores or even a larger hardware store. I see these all over the place and they're inexpensive.
