Sea and Onboard Service form
Try our online sea service verification with the Nautilus Sea and Onboard Service form
The Sea and Onboard Services form has been created specifically for deck and engine crew, and will run alongside the current pdf Nautilus sea service testimonial.
Completed online testimonials will be emailed to members to print and have signed and stamped by the ship’s master. The signed testimonial should be scanned and emailed back to the Union for verification.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Marine Professional yacht services Information Note (MIN) 543 (M) describes the arrangements for verification of sea service testimonials of seafarers working in the large yacht sector.
Members can log in to access a sea service testimonial template and a handy guide to the verification process for crew working on yachts who require an up-to-date service record book for their Notice of Eligibility (NoE) applications, or the revalidation of a Certificate of Competency (CoC).
