A method for determining ship displacement in the early stages of design with an accuracy of plus or minus 1.07 percent, even if the main dimensions of the ship are not yet known. The method is based on the separation and individual treatment of the various weight groups, such as steel outfitting and machinery. These individual weights are determined as functions of the design requirements.
