Cleaning, oiling, and varnishing C387 interior teak

Our 2004 C-387, new to us, looks like it could use some interior teak cleaning. I was told by the broker that it has a water-based varnish inside. What product should we use to clean it? My husband bought some kind of oil at West Marine. Doesn’t seem like oil is the right thing? We need to clean it and there may be places where we need to touch up the interior varnish. Interior, not exterior.

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
