There certainly is a boat that meets your requirements, the Cape Bay Fast 40 I've seen it on a trailer. It is very light and only 8' wide. The name is Lawndart and I think it's the most appropriately named boat I've ever seen. From what I've read it weighs 4,000 lbs.

Assuming it is NOT an April fools post,,,,,,, then again, with thefrencha only having 5 posts since 2003.....one never knows, then again, the poster could be an unknown sock puppet.......but lets get back to being serious instead of not........
I believe Bob Perry designed a "Container boat" a few years back, I believe that boat would qualify, as IIRC it was 8-8;4" so legal from with width stand point. Weight wise, do not remember, could be a bit heavy for a light duty SUV. a 25 series SUV or other 8 lug rig with a larger motor, should not be an issue........bridge height wise with the keel on could also be a potential issue.........

The best trailerable boat that I've seen is one that I used to own. It was a Harstad 31 Motorsailer.
She was a 31 foot, center cockpit, ketch-rigged sailboat with an eight-foot beam to keep her legal on the roadways. She weighed in at 8000 pounds and originally came with a trailer.
Although Crealock designed her, I imagine that he was trying to pack too many features into this small a package. She had a lot of pluses, but she also had her down sides.
She was not a good sailing boat unless you ran the diesel most of the time. She was a bit narrow, but had 6' 7" of headroom throughout. Although she was center-cockpit, the aft cabin was separated by the engine room. It was roomy, with two bunks and storage, but the separation was a problem.
Just thought I'd throw that into the mix.

|sealover||Seems the original poster was fooling, but isn't the 32' Seaward trailerable by a one-ton pickup? The same F350 crew cab dually diesels that are launching 15 foot Bayliners, driven by guys looking at me like I'm crazy for launching a 17 foot boat with a six-cylinder station wagon.|

|dnf777||I hear Hunter is coming out with a 45-I......an inflatable blue water cruiser, that will easily fold down into a pop-up camper sized trailerable package. The Mast is telescoping, and will collapse to a 12 foot pole.|
