Re: Stained interior teak
One worry is that that piece of wood is likely a veneered ply.
Heavy sanding is not possible in that case.
did water get in behind that panel?
The stains look to be about the height where objects on the nav table
could chafe it.
Have you tried all the conventional cleaners?
Oxalyic acid (Barkeeper's Friend) is in the one part teak cleaners sold at WM.
It may remove lighten up some of the stains.
Light sanding with a fine grit (#220 or higher), re-oil and/or varnish
and hope for the best.
Or... paint it white!
