Not a perfect match, but any chance it is "Any Number Can Win", a.k.a "Mélodie en sous-sol"?
Detailed plot:

The heist is not underwater (although water and a pool play an important part), there is no ship and death by propeller, but it is a heist/caper movie, from 1963, noir like, black and white, and at the end of the movie, the money floats to the surface of an outdoor pool of a c a s i n o. The crooks do not have the money at the end, crime does not pay.

"Francis retrieves the bags, but finds police are everywhere in the pool area, making it difficult to pass the money to Charles, who is waiting at a table. Francis then overhears the cashier telling detectives he remembers the look of the suitcases used to carry out the money.
"Desperate, Francis places the bags in the pool. One bag breaks open, and Francis and Charles look on helplessly as the money inside floats to the top of the pool."

Maybe you are mixing this movie up with an other movie, a ship movie?
