You speak of steel deck beams... Is this a steel vessel? If she is then the designer went for ascetic looks with the teak deck.
You can pull all of the old decking up and then using high quality marine plywood, sealed with expoxy and install your first layer of the deck... Use the same thickness of Ply or a tad thicker. Then you can apply the top layer of decking... And there are quality decking material that is just as good in looks and is a tad less expensive then teak and has a good feel under your bare feet.
Hopefully you have measured where all of the deck jewelery was on the old deck.
