You need to clarify what you mean by Oscars.  Do you mean movies that won "Best Picture" only?  The ones that come to mind are Mutiny on the Bounty (if that is a ship), Mrs. Miniver (if those boats count),  From Here to Eternity (very brief scene at the end),  Ben-Hur (if that counts), The Godfather Part II (barely).   Ship of Fools was nominated for Best Picture and a number of others, and won for Best Cinematography. The Long Voyage Home had multiple nominations, but no Oscar wins.

One of the options in the search box atop (nearly) every IMDb page lets you search for keywords (dropdown box immediately left of the search icon):

Here's the URL this search generated: http://www.imdb.com/find?ref_=nv_sr_fn&q=ship&s=kw

Then within Advanced Title Search, you can select Oscar nominated, or Oscar won, along with one of those keywords. For instance: http://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=feature&groups=oscar_winner&keywords=ship&so...
gives Oscar-Winning, "ship" Feature Films (Sort by Release Date, desc), 58 titles.

Of course, keywords are user-contributed, so it's not an absolute guarantee you'll find all of what you seek, nor that what you find really is what you have in mind.
