That old wood finish question again

So, I've read what seems like 100 different threads with no real conclusions other than some people like one thing and others like something else.
The brightwork on my boat is somewhat less than bright and it's about time I sorted it out.
I have the cabin-top handrails, the hatchboards, the tiller and the rail across the transom to do. None of this is exactly high-wear, and the UV up here generally isn't too bad.
What do folks in the PNW (or PSW for us BC'ers) use? I hate varnishing, so something relatively easy to apply and not requiring a million coats would be good. I also don't like high gloss, or fake colouring. Just want something simple to apply, protects the wood, lasts for a few years (ideally) and just brings out the natural colour of the wood.
