Boat Weight (Dumb Question)

I''m looking to buy a trailerable boat but need to be mindful of weight for towing purposes and the limited capability of my tow vehicle. In the spec''s you seen on sailboats, is the "displacement" category the approximate weight of the boat, the amount of water that the boat displaces or both?? If the boat weight is not the displacement weight, how can I tell?

Thanks in advance!
