What is the largest trailerable sailboat?

Catalina 250 Bodega Bay CA
While my Catalina fixed keel, tall mast is not the largest trailerable it sure is all the boat I would want to pull! It stands 12.5' high on the trailer and center of gravity quite high. I installed anti-sway bars on trailer tongue but still hell to tow! Lot of boat for 25'! Great boat once it is in the water. Like Meriachee's mast raising system: I designed it myself and uses mainsheet blocks to raise mast with 1 pole and 2 side lines. Works fine. Chief

Macgregor 25 Oregon lakes
Just got home an hour ago from 3 days on our local lake, which is a typical adventure for us, and accomplished 6-8 times a season. all trailered. I've been looking for a better boat for our needs for 4 years now but haven't seen one yet that does everything better than our lowly Macgregor 25. easy to tow (2100 lb displacement) swing keel sits low on the trailer and easily launches at any improved ramp. sets up/breaks down in about 40 minutes. keeps up with or beats most any of the commonly seen boats at our small marina (231 phrf).

Careful Russ she might hear that tone in your voice.
Not “Lowly” if she treats you right. She wants to be celebrated for meeting your needs.
