In a crude oil tanker, does Deadweight tons include weight of ship or only weight of the cargo?

Also, in, say, a Very Large Crude Carrier, approximately how much will the vessel weigh with and without fuel and how much will the cargo weigh? I’m more interested in the approximate percentages of the total rather than absolute weights, unless you can supply typical weights for each.

    "Deadweight is the displacement at any loaded condition minus the lightship weight. It includes the crew, passengers, cargo, fuel, water, and stores. Like Displacement, it is often expressed in long tons or in metric tons."

    Well the percentages differe for different ships but I can give you a general idea
    If a ship is fully loaded than
    Weight of the Carge about 90%
    Weight of the ship about 10%.
