Put particle board over it...

Two ideas... one) get some nice wood veneer and finish it off that way... or two) use a laminate veneer, similar to Formica to cover it. It really depends on what kind of boat you're on. If the boat is a newer one, with less wood, and you like the idea of lower maintenance, then the second way is probably better. If you have an older boat with a more traditional interior, then go with the wood veneer.

Either way, you'll get a light, fairly low maintenance, good looking solution.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Or take a decorative painting class, and apply a faux-wood-grain paint finish over whatever is there now?

One heads-up, "Kleen Strip" cover-up stuff is not the same as the "Klean-Strip" solvent spray, confusing the two could either leave you with a puddle of skin around your ankles, or a batch of glue that wasn't coming unstuck.
