Waltthesalt In the 70s Perrson made a center cockpit centerboard trailer sailer. That was the biggest trailer sailer that I've seen.

Bene505 I'll second (third? fourth?) the idea of buying a boat in Florida and sailing from there. Add I believe sailboats are very inexpensive right now.

Yup, I think Ian Farrier has a lot of the right answers for this.

Anything from the F-27 to F-31 is going to be trailerable, strong, fast, and shoal-draft. There have been some long 0ff-shore legs done by these boats. Not cheap, but great resale value.

And of course the Telstar 28!

mccary I have a Catalina 27 and have considered getting a trailer and a BIG A$$ truck to haul it (8'10" beam and 6500#s). It would be expensive to say the least, but the warm climate and island life beckons one day maybe.

Largest trailerable sailboat

I don't know about the largest, but my C&C Mega 30 is a breeze launching off a trailer from a municiple boat ramp. At 8' beam and 2' draft for launching and the rig goes up in minutes. You can take this boat any where; and kick some serious ass on the race course. If your serious about sailing give this boat a trial run pure adrenaline rush. She is for sale if you are interested.

did that

We trailered a Cape Dory 25D from Wisconsin to Key Largo. Many 25D's came with a very nice Triad trailer. The total wgt of boat and trailer was about 7,000 lbs and the beam is 8'0" so it was not that big deal of to trailer it with a decent pickup. We usually launched ourselves (used a trailer tongue extension) but used a travellift to put the boat back on the trailer to make sure it was on the trailer pads perfectly. Took 2 months off of work and cruised the Bahamas down into the Exumas. I can highly recommend doing it--it was a blast. FWIW also met a couple who trailered their C&C 30 (not the mega) from the Maryland to FLA, but they had to get permits for overwidth, etc.
