* Since 2015, a flotilla of wooden boats has washed ashore in Japan with their decaying crews still aboard. The Korean writing on one the boats (which of which read "Korean People's Army") and the clothing of the deceased suggests that they were civilian defectors who were fleeing North Korea's oppressive regime. However, that doesn't explain why the occupants of one ship appeared to have been decapitated -- or why another contained [[http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/07/asia/japan-ghost-ship/index.html six human skulls]].

* In 2006, a tanker was found drifting off the coast of Queensland. The engines were inoperable, and a broken tow-rope suggested that she was in transit and simply broke loose. Even though there were no signs of foul play or illegal activity, the ship had been stripped of all identifying markings, and wasn't registered to any port. She was eventually identified as the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jian_Seng Jian Seng]].

She was never claimed, and it's still unknown where she originated from or why she was adrift (though a large quantity of rice found below deck suggested that she was being used as a supply ship for fishing vessels).

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, there is legend of the Crimson Ship. During the 2nd Era, the [[MysticalPlague Knahaten Flu]] ravaged Tamriel, with the Kothringi (a tribal race of [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation silver-skinned]] menfolk native to the Black Marsh) being among the hardest hit. Despite their primitive culture, they were [[BornUnderTheSail skilled sailors]], so a [[RacialRemnant small group]] of their people boarded the Crimson Ship and sailed away from the Black Marsh to find refuge. They were denied by almost every other nation in Tamriel. Hammerfell, home of the [[ScaryBlackMan Redguards]] in western Tamriel, was the last to deny them shelter. With no other choice, the Crimson Ship sailed west into the open ocean. According to Redguard legend, sailors later supposedly found the ship with all aboard having died. Every year, they memorialize this as the "Day of Shame", in which no Redguards leave their homes, believing that the Crimson Ship will return to take revenge. (According to other sources, the Crimson Ship was never seen again after it sailed west, and none who have seen it have ever returned alive.)

* The 2006 made-for-ITV movie ''Ghost Boat'' centres on a ghost ''submarine'', which surfaces in the middle of the Black Sea forty years after being reported lost in action, InWorkingOrder but completely empty. It is put back to sea with a crew of modern-day Royal Navy submariners, with the only survivor (played by David Jason) of the original crew on board as well. They retrace the ship's original course as closely as possible, whilst the sole survivor starts to regain his memories of the last few weeks before the boat was lost and he was found floating in his life jacket with a bad concussion. Then things start getting weird... [[spoiler: The crew start seeing ghostly German warships and aircraft, and entries in the ship's logbook start appearing where there'd previously been none. The crew start to act increasingly like the WW2 crew, and eventually David Jason's character has to sabotage the sub when the actions of the possessed captain threaten to start WW3. The sub sinks with the captain and David Jason aboard... and later is found drifting again, this time looking as battered as a sub abandoned for 40 years should, and with no sign of the bodies of the captain or Jason.]]

* ''Film/DeepRising'': A mercenary crew prepares to board a mega-luxurious cruise liner in the South China Sea, only to find empty blood-soaked halls when they run in guns blazing. They soon discover that a few hours before they arrived the ship was attacked by a huge monster, which then tries to add them to the menu as well.

Everything that goes wrong thereafter, whether by accident or malice, stems from this well-meaning decision.

* The merchant vessel ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Joyita Joyita]]'' was found adrift in the South Pacific in 1955, 600 miles off course, minus her 25 passengers and crew. The life boats and dinghy were missing, as was most of the ship's cargo. Bizarrely, the ship's starboard engine had been covered with mattresses, as if to plug a leak -- even though her hull was completely sound. No trace of the passengers or crew was ever found, and the case remains unsolved to this day. The ''Joyita'' is sometimes referred to as "the ''Mary Celeste'' of the South Pacific".
