Options for hot water

I'm a new guy so apologize for this probably dumb question. In the larger cruiser designs I see that the shower is often integrated with the head. How do you make hot water on a boat?

Our family has a small cottage on a finger lake in upstate NY and we live near Lake Ontario so I've been on and around boats of all types my entire life. Fairly accomplish...
