I remember the "named after" was my initial idea for that poll but then I had to accept titles that contain the name of a boat or the list was too short :)

The sieze of the list doesn't matter much to me. The biggest issue is Titanic is gonna win with 85-95% of the votes.

The title needs to be only the name of the boat.

Titanic was a ship, not a boat.

@cinephile,

For your consideration:

Kon-Tiki (2012)

In 1947, the world was gripped with excitement as the young Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl embarked on an astonishing expedition - a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean on the raft "Kon-Tiki". From his days living in the Marquesas with his wife Liv, Thor suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by ancient South Americans from thousands of miles to the east. Despite his inability to swim and his fear of water, Thor decided to confirm his theory by sailing the legendary voyage himself.

Lifeboat (1944)

In the Atlantic during WW II, a ship and a German U-boat are involved in battle, and both are sunk. The survivors - from a variety of backgrounds -gather in one of the life boats. Trouble begins when they pull a man out of the water who turns out to be from the U-boat

U-571 (2000)

In the midst of World War II, the battle below the seas rages. The Nazis have the upper edge as the Allies are unable to crack their war codes. That is, until a wrecked U-boat sends out an SOS signal, and the Allies realize this is their chance to seize the 'enigma coding machine'. But masquerading as Nazis and taking over the U-boat is the smallest of their problems. The action really begins when they get stranded on the U-boat.

PT 109 (1963)

Dramatization of President John F. Kennedy's WWII military experiences during which he commanded a PT boat that sank after being rammed by a Japanese destroyer while on patrol in the South Pacific on a very dark night. He and the other survivors, some of whom were wounded, made their way to a nearby island where they had to survive on meager rations and avoid capture by enemy forces till they could find a way to signal the Navy for rescue.

@cinephile,

Also for your consideration:
