* ''Manga/OnePiece'' uses transponder snails instead of telephones, uses seashells called "dials" as weapons of mass destruction, and has heavy stylized architectures and a mythos that oozes old-timey pirate lore.

* The world of ''Manga/OnePiece'' uses has very little in terms of land mass, being made of mostly giant oceans, the Grand Line, one giant continent running around it like a ring and many many islands. As such, most of the story is set very close to water, with the protagonists being pirates (the nice kind) and the antagonists being mostly bad pirates, bounty hunters and the Marines. On top of that, transponder snails instead take the roles of telephones, uses telephones and cameras, seashells called "dials" act as weapons of mass destruction, and it has heavy stylized architectures and a mythos that oozes old-timey pirate lore.

%%* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet''* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' is set in the distant future, where the human race has fled the earth to escape from a new ice age and is now locked in a battle with the superpowered space squids known as Hideauze. Part of it anyway, and they only get screen time at the beginning of the first episode. The other part somehow sat out the ice age on earth, which has turned into a giant ocean with absolutely not a single piece of land above water somehow, having a live and let live relationship with the resident superpowered ocean squids known as Whale Squids. The earth part of humanity, where all the story happens, survives by pillaging sunken ships and submerged ruins and connecting dozens to hundreds of ships to enormous fleets such as the eponymous Gargantia. While the space humans have incredibly powerful futuristic spaceships, cannons and multiple types of powerful HumongousMecha, the weapons of the earth humans are WWII era guns and battleships as well as the Yunboroids, far less futuristic mechas, although they are mostly used for salvaging, transport and maintenance. Oh, and there's pirates and a [[BeachEpisode "boat partly submerged by the weight of a mecha" episode]] because there are no beaches anymore.

* ''Film/{{Moana}}'' has elements of this, most notably with the Kokomorra, who are fantasy pirates living on interconnected ships so big that they're virtually floating islands.

** ''Literature/Railsea'' is this trope and DesertPunk having collided hard and fused together. The sea has been replaced by a wasteland covered in railway line; landmasses stick out of it as islands, complete with coasts; and trains have captains (and some are powered by sails). The train in this case is a moler rather than a whaler, with the [[AnimalNemesis captain]] chasing a legendary monster as a substitute for [[Literature/MobyDick a certain giant white whale]]; other substitute sea and air monsters threaten trains; trains have crew un their upper decks like ships, and, yes, there be pirates. Then again, apart from a certain fanciful Victorian postcard artwork, an actual ship usually doesn't have to worry about being wrecked by a break of gauge...

Many works of modern fantasy or speculative fiction are set in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and mighty colonial nations vying for rulership of the oceans and seas. Also often called Pirate Punk, as the setting naturally lends itself (but is by no means obliged) to have many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over. Fantastic elements based on old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) also make a frequent appearance. Groups that are BornUnderTheSail tend to be common.

Humans mostly inhabit "atolls", ramshackle floating villages built out of whatever junk and flotsam could be scavenged from the sea, but there are also Drifters who spend their entire lives sailing nomadically between villages on one-person boats, aquatic mutants with gills behind their ears, and the Smokers, feared pirates with access to the only remaining motor craft. It's also mentioned that things like food plants and soil have become rare and valuable luxuries.
