Shipwrecked chests are mostly found on shipwrecks (obviously). They are labeled as whatever tier of chest they are and are identified by having broken metal pieces and barnacles all over them. They can be any tier of chests and their value doesn't seem to differ much from the non-shipwrecked versions of each. If for whatever reason you are still unsure if your chest is "shipwrecked", you are notified when they are turned in to the gold hoarders with a message like : "Shipwrecked marauder's chest sold"

Shipwrecks are found in the open world with a large group of birds circling overhead. Sometimes you won't be able to see any piece of the ship sticking out of the water and only see the birds. Keep an eye out for them. Shipwrecks can hold anywhere from 0-2 chests

You can also (very rarely) find these kind of chests buried in the sand on islands, generally poking out of the sand on beaches. (EDIT: Various user reports state that these no longer count towards your progression)
