I guess some of the answer depends on the make but a ball park figure would be enough.
I would be using an Audi A4 or a VW Passat
It ALL depends on the boat/engine/trailer.
A light boat, on a light trailer, with an old 2 stroke engine, and not too much gear/fuel on board could have a weight of <750kg but a heavier boat, with a lot of fuel, a 4 stroke engine (or worse twins) a big aframe etc could easily be well over 750kg which will force you to get a bigger, heavier, braked trailer.
So for a very vague answer somewhere in the 600-1200 kg range unless you go very light or very heavy!
