Lightship, lightweight, or lightship displacement is the mass of a finished vessel, abscent of any provisions, supplies, or cargo. Normally flooded spaces, excluding ballast, will be flooded, but any permenant ballast will be fitted. The vessel is essentially in its final pre-delivery state. This condition is also ideal for inclining tests. Lightship is related to displacement by the formula;

Displacement = Deadweight + Lightship
