By "water body", do you mean "lakes, rivers" or "sees, oceans" or both ? If you just need "sees, oceans", there are some extracts done by external resources at regular intervals and exported in shapefile format. For the first (lakes, rivers), it might be more complicated but possible.

If you are interested in lakes and rivers etc you can download an OSM data extract for your area from or ... see planet on the OSM wiki for details.

Then do a filtering maybe with osmfilter.

Or if you are interested in coastlines or oceans, see OSMcoastline.
