Shower heads

We own a 2017 Dufour, and the shower bar is already showing nasty rusty spots (even though it is only 6 months old). According to the manager where our boat resides, the shower heads and chrome are cheap; plastic with a chrome finish. I am looking for a higher quality chrome shower fixture that will withstand the marine environment. Can anyone recommend a brand that will hold up longer than 6 months? Thanks in advance.

Re: Shower heads

Don't know the brand, not on fixture. But I bought a standard shower head with a good spray from Lowe's 5 years ago and no rust, but only RO water has been thru it. The only modification was drilling out the restricter plate for a good flow. Outside looks like chrome over plastic (probably sprayed aluminum), inside center (with the holes) is about 1.5 to 2 inches across and all plastic.
