So far it does well, it's been now in place for this year. To be frank, my boat is on an inland lake, so it's usually only used for the weekends only, but we do quite a lot of cooking then, so the galley is in use.

I first painted the plywood to color, then coated it with 4 layers of varnish (bit of a sanding between the layers), and it seems to be hard enough to resist scratches.

And if it gets scratched in the future, I can just sand it a bit and recoat a couple of layers without much hassle.
