Rejuvenating Interior Wood

There’s a combination of teak and teak veneer in my late ‘80s cruiser. But the wood’s really showing its age. Some areas are bleached from the sun and others appear to have minor water damage (not lifting, just discolored). The wood appears oiled/stained rather that varnished. At least the wood does not appear to have ever had a gloss finish.

What are my options for bringing the wood back to life?

I've heard that sanding the veneer is pretty risky. If sanding isn't recommended, how can I prepare the wood so that it has a consistent color prior to refinishing?

General tips?

Product recommendations?

Suggestions short of re-varnishing?

Thanks for the help.
