Just a thought.
Hi there - my first post to these forums! I'm learning the art of sailing, and am a bit of an exercise buff. I've found that pilates and yoga on deck is very doable. You sometimes have to get creative and adjust your moves, but otherwise works well with just a mat. I use the Theraband that someone else had previously mentioned as well.
The cockpit is a great place for dips, push-ups and crunches. I have a friend who installed a pull-up bar on board as well. You can use the boat itself as your equipment.
