Nothing looks as 'nautical' as a nicely planked ceiling (ie, inside surfaces of hull above settees) If light/dark is an issue using a light coloured wood like maybe ash or oak can contrast nicely with existing teak or mahogany trim. Even cedar battens could be used, it's nice and light to boot. It's also easier to deal with the typical compound curves, esp amidships, than with any sort of panel or veneer. OTOH many V berth ceiling areas are flat/straight enough for paneling of some sort...
