According to my Essential Guide, it weighs between 2487-2687#. That is dry weight from the factory. Add some for fuel, gear and accessories.
The title is asking for displacement, which is a different thing, the amount of water the boat will displace. You want the boat’s weight for trailering, right?

Thanks! yes, I actually wanted the weight for lifting the boat off the trailer to build a cradle. I made an overhead hoist and want to put an electronic winch on it to lift the boat. Just wanted to estimate the lifting capacity I needed for the winch. Sorry, mixing up terminology!

You are welcome. That's a common mistake. :)
