What's everyones opinion on these ships that are found with no crew or people in there?

en.wikipedia.org...

The Dei Gratia had left New York harbor only seven days after the Mary Celeste. Dei Gratia's crew observed her for two hours and concluded that she was drifting, though she was flying no distress signals. Oliver Deveau, the Chief Mate of the Dei Gratia, led a party in a small boat to board the Mary Celeste. He reported finding only one pump working, with a lot of water between decks and three and one-half feet of water in the hold. He reported that "the whole ship was a thoroughly wet mess". The ship seemed otherwise to be in good condition, but no one was aboard.


en.wikipedia.org...

Five weeks later, on November 10, Gerald Douglas, captain of the merchant ship Tuvalu, enroute from Suva to Funafuti sighted the Joyita more than 600 miles (1,000 km) from its scheduled route. The ship was partially submerged and there was no trace of any of the passengers or crew; four tons of cargo were also missing.


Pirates? Could Pirates manage to get a whole crew and all the passengers off a ship and onto their own?

I don't know which section to put this.
