Nautilus UK is a British trade union representing shipmasters, officers and cadets serving on merchant ships, as well as other maritime workers such as harbourmasters and marine pilots.



The union was formed in 1985 as the National Union of Marine, Aviation and Shipping Transport Officers (NUMAST) by the merger of the Radio and Electronic Officers Union (REOU) and the Mercantile Marine Services Association (MMSA) with the Merchant Navy and Airline Officers Association (MNAOA).

The union formerly included aviation personnel, such as flight navigators and flight engineers, however these members were transferred to BALPA, the airline pilots' union by 1990.

In 2006 the Union became a partner with the Dutch union Federatie van Werknemers in de Zeevaart, and on 2 October 2006 changed its name to "Nautilus UK"; at the same time FWZ became Nautilus NL. Together these unions form Nautilus International, launched on 19 May 2009.
