    It's hard to calculate something like this from information you have entered. Too small data about ship. But i think the weight is about 6500 tone - maybe

    The lightship weight is 6328 tonnes = LIGHT DISPLACEMENT = LDT

    That is the weight you will sell to the scrap yard

    Not all of the 6238 tonnes is steel - but most of it is steel - say 4500 tonnes

    Rough estimate for a tanker of this size is 100 kg steel for every cubic metre of LBP x B x D. But it depends on age.

    So 0.1 x 164 x 22.05 x 12.05 = 4357 tonnes

    The other "weights" GROSS and NET are not weights - they are volumes - measure of the ship size. The DEADWEIGHT is a weight but is not something you can sell to the scrap yard because it is mostly cargo.

    Other way to check the lightweight is to subtract the deadweight from the displacement.
