One of the real keys to acheiving that level of gloss is to level the finish by sanding between coats and using a very good brush. On things like furniture you can even polish the finish to gloss by using VERY fine sandpaper and then polishing compound, though I think spar varnish would be a bit too soft for that.

Way too glossy for the interior in my opinion.
Ditto. Doesn't look like a boat that gets used.

a bit too shiny for my taste. I like wood well cared for but more subdued.

Interesting that the wood in the cabin (or whatever) to the right of the stairs does not look nearly as glossy.
