basin faucet with separate shower head... any suggestions?

I have reached the shower/head in my quest to restore the interior of our HC43. The old basin faucet was great but is severely corroded and the diverter has seized. It was a vintage piece from the late 70's.
I want a 2 handle faucet that has a diverter control on it and then a hand shower that mounts on a bulkhead.
I'd rather steer clear of plastic styled products. Looking for suggestions / pics...
I have gone through west marine / defender... nothing I like there.

Thanks
Jim

Yes they do. My boat came with one and when it needed a replacement hose, they had that as well.

They do indeed have lots of faucets, but none with a diverter that comes out under the counter.

I think you may have to give up on the diverter under the counter and go with the facet being the shower head.
If I understand then that will leave a hole, you fill that hole with a matching soap dispenser and it looks like it was meant to be that way

Not that I could find. My boatyard orders them from Europe. I am going with an all-in-one type from Defender.

Could you tell me who your boat yard is? Maybe I can get them to order one in for me.
