If it is inside the boat, why not use regular hardware store fixtures, you'll have a much wider selection, and the interior of a boat isn't that hostile an environment. Go down to Home Depot or Lowe's and see what they have to offer. As long as this is a pressurized FRESH water system, it shouldn't much matter that the fixture isn't a marine fixture. :)

If you are talking about a head/lavatory faucet with a pull-up mixer valve that sends the water to the hand held shower, look online at RV places, such as RVDirect. Note that the one I got from them was 4" on center, which is typical for compact installations, I think.

Ditto that Pappy...we used standard fixtures to replace all our outlets/fixtures with zero problems. We had a lot more choice and saved a lot of money over marine stuff. Just take your tape measure down to the home depot!

I've been looking at both HD & lowes online with no luck, only 4" & 8", maybe I go there and look in person.

This is very simular to to what we have now, I've email this company to find out what the centers are.

We went through the same issue a few years ago when I had to replace my shower control. Cause I needed that particular style as well we did this faucet [10411] from scandvik cause could not find any better alternatives [did the home depo/lowes thing as well]. I think they will put different knobs on if you ask.

Another alternative is to drill new holes and cover with either the fixture or with a starboard plate.
I think this is what will end up happening, either starboard or teak plate. right now it's plumbed threw the teak cabinet, then a fixture like what sirius posted, like he said, I can always change out the knobs.


Thank you all, maybe I'll post it later when it's done

Thought I would pass this on; My quest for a wall mounted bridge faucet has ended. I stumbled upon this website call Efaucets and this is what I found.



The brand is Elements of Design and they boast a 4"-9" adjustable centers. As it turns out the fixture is actually made for 6" centers and the attachable dog legs is what gives it its adjustabilty to accommodate the current 4-8" centers layouts.

Anywho, nice fixture, I have a matching horizontal fixture and oval bar sink coming so these, along with the teak cabs & granite look of the tops should look pretty sweet


Oh I should mention that the spout comes off and the shower wand attaches to it
