Jump range is a ship statistic that determines which stars are close enough for the ship to get to through hyper space. If a star is 19ly (light year) away from the ship, and the ship's jump range is lower than 19ly, the ship will not be able to directly jump there.
The jump range is determined by two factors: the mass of the ship and the Frame Shift Drive (FSD). This means the jump range can be increased by installing a better FSD, using lightweight modules, and carrying as little cargo as possible.

Some ships have better jump range than other ships, with the best being:
