These pictures are from our boat but it will give you the idea (these strips are nailed). The strips also don't have to be teak. You could use a plastic or a PVC maybe? Even a high end vinyl wall covering?
I think that looks great!

In the saloon we've replaced the shag with carpet squares. They went down very easily with the mfr recommended spray adhesive. Making sure each successive square was a different pattern number and rotating each 90 deg eliminates repetition. I know its not yachty and might cause some to dry heave but it works for us.

I second dhays concerning noise reduction and comfort.
I think it looks good...

Wool carpet doesn't burn as many plastics will , and can be scrubbed.

Good thing we removed that carpet. Lots of black mold! Seems to have been in carpet and on glue. In places we were able to easily pull off pieces of glue, fiberglass is clean. We've sprayed it with bleach several times. All gone now.
Not sure if there is anything else we should do to treat it.

We are guessing it's from when the boat sat up before po bought it. PO was horrified when we told them they had lived on the boat with that in there.

As long as you cleaned it well and sprayed with bleach, I don't think you will have much of a problem. Just make sure all the moisture issues are taken care of.
