    what type of trailer are you after?

    road trailer or beach trailer/beam ?

    road trailer would require "stub" axles etc to be rated 750- 1000

    to be safe, this would have to enable load weight, ie: outboard, auxillary,

    anchor rope anchor etc etc.

    if your just using trailer/beam for beach, make your own, you can

    launch in shallower water etc with beam.

    if you do get a road trailer check insurance etc, need lights/spare wheel etc etc.

    also watch out for weed when launching/beaching as your trailer will "plough"

    through the weed, filling chasis & adding weight overall.

    trailer in picture rated 850 kg

    use on lock this type should suffice,

    look in local sales/e bay/gumtree etc. check wheel brgs etc.

    It is not that simple Andrew, at the risk of teaching you to suck eggs, it is easy to fall foul of Con and Use regs when towing a trailer , and can be expensive if fined for contravening these regs..

    This is a guide as to max loaded trailer weights and towing vehicles etc, hope it helps ..

    Bri Carragher might know the weight he has a pebble. I would think you're set up with a small outboard would be under 750kg so you could probably be ok with a unbraked trailer depends on how much extra kit you put in the boat when towing. The rest depends on you're vehicle, all relative info will be in the regs in the link. You could always give Indespension a ring and ask them what they recommend.
