Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon

(Please ignore the model selected, it wouldn't let me post unless I selected a model and my model was not there)
I am looking at buying a boat, either aluminum or Fiberglass. I know that the fiberglass is a heavier boat and will therefore need to be smaller than aluminum, but I also need to know what size boat a 1.8L Nissan Primera, year 2000, station wagon can Launch and retrieve off a ramp.

1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

I have a 1997 2.8l GQ Turbo charged diesel Nissan Patrol Wagon. Can you tell me what the official braked towing capacity is for such vehicle?

According to the National Roads and Motorists Association, it says it can tow up to 750 kg when it was new without brakes on load. Maybe a little more with brakes on trailer. I assume it is in very good condition. It can be a bit of a gas guzzler especially with a load.

What is the towing capacity 2007 holden vz station wagon? 6 cylinder

Its usually in the drivers handbook. Probably around 2/3rds the vehicle weight with a braked trailer. Call a local towbar fitter who may have an all makes reference book.
