In my experience yes you can, butů.. adhesion may be poor. Polyurethane spar varnish will stick to just about anything however if what ever you are covering up does not have good adhesion to the substrate then you are really just wasting your time.

In nearly every instance, I think you are time and money ahead to strip or sand down to the base material and refinish from scratch. Top coating with paint, varnish or what have you is merely a stop gap measure that should really only be utilized as a temporary repair sort of thing.
