Kubikfuß (engl. cubic foot, Abk. cft) ist ein insbesondere im Schiffbau noch oft verwendetes Raummaß, dem das Maß Fuß (0,3048 m) zugrunde liegt. Wird oft noch in der ehemaligen Sowjetunion verwendet.

1 Kubikfuß entspricht exakt:

1 acre-foot = 43560 cubic foot

Wenn bei Tauchgeräten das Volumen in cft angegeben wird, so bezieht sich das auf die Menge der insgesamt befüllbaren Luft (Betriebsdruck mal Flaschenvolumen). 80 cft bei 200 bar Betriebsdruck entsprechen daher ca. 11,3 l tatsächlichem Flaschenvolumen.
