Thames Measurement, also known as Thames Tonnage, is a system for measuring ships and boats. It was created in 1855 as a variation of Builder's Old Measurement by the Royal Thames Yacht Club, and was designed for small vessels, such as yachts. It was originally used for calculating the port dues for yachts; the formula was also used in some early handicapping systems for yacht racing. The calculation of Thames Tonnage uses the following formula: where: * length is the length, in feet, from the stempost to sternpost; * beam is the maximum beam, in feet. This can be simplified as:

  • Unter Thames Measurement (T.M.) versteht man eine 1855 (andere Quelle: 1854) eingeführte Vermessungsformel für Yachten. Die Formel lautet: .L = Länge von Vorsteven zum AchterstevenB = Breite über alles. (de)
  • Le Thames Measurement est une ancienne jauge de course britannique définie en 1855 par le Royal Thames Yacht Club afin d'établir un classement équitable entre voiliers de différents tonnages participant à une régate. Elle est adoptée en 1876 par la Yacht Racing Association qui la remplace par d'autres jauges à partir de 1880. (fr)
