I live in between two port cities. I love watching the freighters come down the coastline skirting Victoria from Vancouver on their way to Seattle or out and down the West Coast.
In the morning I can tell there's fog in the strait by the horn traffic.

Here's some modern freighter and port games I've dug up from the database.
Please add more if I've missed any.

I am surprised this one got forgotten... It does focus on a lot of different modes of transportation, but going by sea is certainly not forgotten.

Container ships make up most of the traffic offshore.

Didn't get to see any of the big bulk container ships on my last trip to Ontario, but every ferry trip over to Vancouver takes me close by the coaling port at Roberts Bank to see what big ships are there.

Not much description here about this game of the economics of container ships.

Not a day goes by without seeing some ship on the waters around Victoria.
Mind you, I don't get down to the water to look everyday.

There's lots of tricky sailing along the Inside Passage between Vancouver Island and the mainland of BC. But that doesn't stop the wood mill shipping traffic from plying their trade.

Shipping and the one thing you had to worry about until modern weather came about - NASTY storms!

Big container ships like these can be seen hanging around the port of Vancouver.

No gigantic oil tankers yet. Though the threat of Alaskan tankers coming down here always looms.

How about an oldie to add to your list? In Cargoes (1934), players travel around the world picking up and delivering different loads. First player back to their home port wins a bonus, but the winner is the player with the most cash.

My copy is from the 1950s, it has plastic freighter ships. The earliest edition has metal freighters. Here's a picture of the 1934 edition of the game:

Loading freighters at the docks. The underbelly of the shipping business. Bribery, indeed!
