Deep Water is a 2006 British documentary film directed by Jerry Rothwell and Louise Osmond, and produced by Jonny Persey. It is based on the true story of Donald Crowhurst and the 1969 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race round the world alone in a yacht. It opened in the UK on 15 December 2006.

The film has received critical acclaim. The official poster quotes The Daily Telegraph, 'A movie which will reduce the hardest of hearts to a shipwreck'. It was described as 'fascinating' by The New York Times upon its release.
