If your interior is fiberglass like mine was, you can consider this: I used an oil-based exterior primer specifically for its ability to adhere to fiberglass. Afterward I used a good exterior latex in an off-white for the top coats. I got all the paint at Home Depot, because I figured the environment inside my boat is the same as a house right on the beach, and those were good paints for that environment.

I would have used an oil-based exterior paint, but Home Depot was out of the only brand of that they carry, and the paint guy assured me that latex over oil was perfectly fine (he showed me on the can where it said so, too), so I went with the exterior latex.

Looks great and I'm very happy with it.
