The Nautical Institute is a thriving membership organisation, open to all those with a professional interest in the control of sea-going ships and other maritime matters. Network with colleagues at local Institute branch events and seminars.
The Nautical Institute aims to help maritime professionals promote and learn about best practice at sea. Part of this is achieved through our online Technical Library.
The Nautical Institute is a major maritime publisher with over 200 titles to its credit. Many of these books have become industry standards and are acknowledged by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The hallmark of Institute publications is that they are ‘Practical Guides’ written ‘by practitioners for practitioners’.
Mariners' Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS)
MARS is a free searchable database containing reports of accidents and near misses stretching back over a quarter of a century. Funded through the generous support of the Institute’s Nautical Affiliate partners, it is one of the maritime industry’s leading risk reduction initiatives and is helping to make life safer for seafarers everywhere.
