* There's artwork in ''TabletopGame/Traveller'', where a space carrier appears with flight deck and island as if it was a seagoing one.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the Space Titanic episode "A Flight to Remember". It survived Zapp Brannigan's decision to take it through a field of comets ("Ah, yes, comets, the ice-bergs of the sky!"), but then he had to steer it near "that black-ish, hole-ish thing". Also, a Dark Matter Tanker appears in "The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz" and a Pirate ship at the beginning of "Godfellas".

* ''VideoGame/VegaStrike'' has [[http://wiki.vega-strike.org/Vessel:Hidalgo Hidalgo]]. It's a luxury yacht made by [[FeudalFuture Highborn faction]], so [[UpToEleven extra-extra-fancifulness]] is to be expected. And yes, it's one of SpacePirate ships of choice too.

* Had Creator/ToeiAnimation accepted the [[WesternAnimation/ToonMakersSailorMoon Toon Makers bid]] for remaking ''Anime/SailorMoon'' (in the infamous "Saban Moon"), instead of Creator/DiC's dubbing, Americans would have gotten the Sailor Senshi battling evil by going sailing in space... on space-windsurfers... involving fights with such ships.

Needless to say, they took the "sailor" part of the title a bit literally.

* In Leo Frankowski's ''The Two Space War'', Hyperspace is literally two dimensional, and spaceships are sailing ships made of wood infested with an alien fungus.

* A follow-on novella to DavidDrake's ''Literature/RanksOfBronze'', "Delenda Est Carthago" by EricFlint features the newly created space navy of Terra, based on stolen [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum technology]] brought back to 21st century Earth by the survivors of Crassus' Roman legions. Said technology included a warp drive and DeflectorShields which would also work to keep the air in, resulting in humanity's first space fleet consisting of converted submarines, frigates, carriers and battleships, pulled from the waves and into space. The battleship ''Missouri'''s part of the action was particularly reminiscent of ''Anime/UchuuSenkanYamato''. There was, however, one ship included in honour of the returned Romans: a restored Roman galley. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny The fleet commander was constantly infuriated by the fact the galley's crew were still rowing]].

* Ships in the ''Literature/AlexisCarew'' are propelled through darkspace via charged sails that harness the "winds" of dark energy, which tends to flow towards massive objects like planetary systems. Since nothing electrical works in darkspace unless shielded with expensive [[{{Unobtainium}} gallenium]], this means the sails have to be set by hand, and complexity and cost of sailplan governs the size of interstellar ships.
