Acetone works really well but it does remove all wax and polishes so you'll need to reapply them. Another trick are the "magic erasers" from the cleaning section of the grocery store. I think they are made by Mr. clean? Also, 3M makes a good "deck cleaner" that is pretty effective for general overall cleaning. It gets up lots of ground in dirt etc. Good luck.

I wouldn't take acetone to a fiberglass boat. Acetone damages the resin. Lacquer thinner would be a better option.

But..........Any good cleaner wax like 3M or Starbright should do the job. I've used Starbright non skid cleaner with good results, too.
Cured fiberglass resin (polyester) is not effected by acetone. Acetone is used for cleanup in the laying up process but once it's cured acetone wont do a thing.
