Net tonnage measures volume of airspace. Like deadweight tonnage, it is used to rate a ship’s cargo carrying capacity.

To determine NT, the cubic footage of all non-cargo spaces – crew accommodations, machinery and navigation areas, the engine room, and the fuel and water tanks – are measured. This measurement is divided by 100 to convert it to net tons. This figure is then subtracted from the gross tonnage figure. The result is net tons of cargo carrying capacity in cubic measure. See also gross tonnage.
