Default Dry weight vs. wieght without engines?

Is there a difference in these catagories of boat specifications. GWhite uses weight without engines and Wellcraft uses dry weight. Are they the same thing? Thanks in adance for any info you might have.

Dry weight is the weight of the boat without engines, fuel, water, or any other items included. Weight without engines is the same thing. Most manufacturers always give the weight of just the boat-no engines, gear, or liquids.

Not all boats listed as "dry weight" use the same criteria. It can also mean no liquids or gear but includes engines. For inboard boats dry weight usually does include the standard power package (ex: Albemarle 280). GW specifies what their weight figures include as does Pursuit. I am not sure if the engines are included in Wellcraft but a quick look at the Boat Buyers Guide in SportFishing mag each year clearly shows how the weights of similar boats wildly vary according to this criteria.

Sometime dry weight is without any options. I'm talking bare hull without a hard top or anything.
