What Beadboard in the Bathroom?

Getting close to starting an upgrade of my main bathroom. It currently has 70's tile wrapped around the entire room, from floor to 54" up the wall. Was thinking of having a contractor paint or replace tub and re-tile tub walls. (Just a statement, no question here.) For the remaining tiled walls, I was thinking of removing the tiled part and replacing with bead board (because I could probably do this cheaper than having a pro paint the tiles.) I've seen a few beadboard products. The hardboard wouldn't last the trip from the store to my house. I've seen plywood bead board ("ply bead" at Lowes), but didn't know if that's what used in bathrooms. I've also seen 7.5" wide by 8' long PVC planks, but that would be too expensive. Also, saw a video where Norm was cutting mdf beadboard. What type of beadboard is typically used in a wet/humid bathroom setting?

I'm open to suggestions of other ways to update the tiled walls. I'd use drywall, but my mudding skills are pathetic. I'm better at carpentry....and demo.
