Steel baths are a good alternative to cast iron. They have a lot of advantages, one of which is weight. They are almost 4-5 times weight less than cast iron baths. Also they cost less than the cast iron. Steel baths come in different forms, and in addition, these baths have a wall thickness of 2.3 mm, which allows to keep water warm.
