Creative, less-work solutions:

If the panel is smooth or can be made so with light sanding, and you have a good eye for color, faux paint the discolored area with artists' acrylics to match surrounding color and grain detailing, then varnish to match sheen.

Rather than irreversibly painting the teak paneling, use high-grade, vinyl wallpaper. It can be applied to selective areas, may be easily undone by future owners, and especially with tone-on-tone patterns available, is less harsh than the contrast of teak trim and white walls.

I've also seen murals painted or charts of favorite waters decoratively decoupaged on a damaged wall.

For longevity and to create a classic look, varnish interior teak trim with a gloss rather than matte finish. Good luck!

I am nearing the end of a complete refit where I removed all internal lining.
I dug and ground the internal walls back to the fiberglasd skin.
I then made templates out of mdf strip's and used a hot glue gun to join them.
Marine ply was then cut and glued to the fibreglass using megapoxy glue.

The walls will undoubtedly be plywood faced with a teak veneer of whatever thickness.
I have attempted water damage repair to existing panels many times including stripping, sanding, bleaching, staining etc - all without success.
However if the panel is really sound, a good professional faux finisher should be able to correct the defects. He/she may have to treat the whole panel.
If there is any suggestion of weakness in the panel, it should be cut out and replaced with new plywood then veneered.
The problem with using new teak veneer is that most times it's much darker than your existing interior teak. This is due to sun 'lightening' over time.
I use an Anigre veneer which is very light in color but with similar grain patterns to teak.
You can readily darken veneer but it's almost impossible to lighten.
I took off an existing small panel, took it to Sherwin Williams along with an Anigre sample and they made up a quart of stain to match.
Depending on the existing grain configuration, you'll need to order either 'flat cut' or 'quarter sawn' veneer. Google it to see the differences.

Hi Marigold!
We have a 1978 Marine Trader 44 and we had some water stains and veneer damage to deal with too. I wanted to save everything we could! We tried several options for replacement peel and stick and just couldn't quite find what we wanted as far as color goes.
I'm not sure how severe your damage is, but for us there were some places where it was just discoloration and slight damage, that we cleaned up put a coat of poly over and accepted the "distressed look". I actually like it a lot.
Walls that were just full damage and unsalvageable we used marine plywood to replace the wall and installed vinyl flooring with FRP glue in a color called Sapele Red from Lowe's. It seems to match up really well with the original teak that we left in place.
I wish you the best, matching things up is tough!
