Achilles 24 plus trailer is approx 2 tonnes. If the trailer has a working break and the boat is currently not on the far side of the Alpes that should be fine as you usually should be able to tow 2.5 tonnes without problems.

I drove "Blue Myth" 350 km from the west to the east without breaks on the trailer, but with a Jeep what is also fine when you are not in a hurry.

Hi David, the previous owner of my boat also had a Passat and managed to tow the boat around on a four wheeled braked trailer. Personally I hate towing and wouldn't want to do it through choice.
By the way we have a member selling an Achilles 24 at a pretty good price. See Topic headed "new Boat"
