Has anyone evey attempted this project. If so can you give me some pointers on what I need to purchase and or ow to do this. I bought a 2004 Limited edition and it didnt come with a shower or center belly tank. That is next on my list.

There is a pretty thorough write-up for installing a shower in a Nautique at the link below. Do you have the Excalibur? I assume you do. If you happen to have the ZR-6, you'll have a few extra steps due to the closed cooling system.

Installation is pretty straight forward. Get a kit from HeaterCraft and basically follow directions. The kit should come with the fittings for the block and return lines and plumbing to the front.
You'll have to remove the floorboard to get the hoses to the front, behind the kickpanel. Remove the kick panel and you'll mount the heater exchange back there someplace and then hook up the hoses. You'll have to find the circuit to the push panel for the heater on/off switching, might be pre-wired.
Not a bad job, just need to gain access to areas.

Wakejunky I want to add a shower, not the heater. My boat already came with that.

RodE, Heatercraft makes both heaters and showers for all makes of boats. They seem fairly straightforward to install.

Check out They have two setups from $165 heated/water temp and $445 which offers the heated and cooled water.

I did mine myself and it could be easily done for under $100, chances are since you can afford a new 2004 you want a nice kit:-) Mine works great, the only difference is mine uses a garden-hose y-splitter to control temp and my pump is hooked to my anchor light=turn on anchor light, shower pump turns on. If you have any questions shoot me an email.

I parted one out for my Tige'. I used a shower box for an RV I bought on E Bay for $30.00, and heater hose and engine block adapters. I spent a total of $60.00 and got a great system. You can PM me and I'll show you how I did it.
