Clean both boards with ISO alcohol and new battery see if phones fire up..

Nobody just sells motherboard as they are the iPhone itself..

You might get lucky on eBay with some1 selling a board..

Or you will just need to buy a new phone this is the safe option as other parts in the water damaged phone could be blown aswel
