Sherwin-Williams makes an adhesive primer (about $75/gal) that makes painting interiors very easy. They also have a large selection of oil based paints. We painted our interior 8 years ago, and have enjoyed the variety and contrasts with the interior teak. Now we're preparing to sell that boat so I'm painting it back to white when the weather is warm enough. Resale, nonwhite interior is a detriment. The good part is we now have a new canvas to personalize in our new boat. It also is warmer to add color in a cabin...just stick to light tints.

White with wood trim is a classic look that also makes the space look larger. Green is the color you achieve when seasick.

ps - what amazed me when googling is that you can still buy ugly leisure suits.

Not me, and unfortunately not my boat either.

I've never had that much hair and I hate green.

Yes, oil based paint! The light cream color I put in my Newport 27 in 1997 still looks good. It was a Sherwin-Williams paint. Don't remember what other than there wern't a lot of oil based choices even then. And my guess is if you're in California there aren't any, at least back in the 70's there weren't, when I was there. But there are state lines? Make sure you use that adhesive primer, it really helps.
