Gross Registered tons is not a measurement of the weight of the vessel. It is a measurement of the volume of space within the hull, where every 100 cubic feet of space is equal to one gross registered ton. For a documented vessel the GRT of the vessel is stated on the Certificate of Documentation; for a state registered vessel the GRT can be estimated using this formula: length x width x depth (inside the hull) divided by 100.
