Not sure, but a 3 axle trailer is going to up that load a lot..maybe 11k lbs total?
I'm thinking you want a 1 ton dually diesel.
I towed a 26 ft heavy-ish sail boat with a F250 diesel for a while... it was definitely not overpowered.

My neighbors have Pacific Seacraft Dana, 7200 lbs. and they haul it all over with an F-350 , with single rear wheels.

I have a smaller but heavier boat. My boat is listed at 8100lbs. Add the trailer and gear, I'm at just over 11,000 lbs. I tow mine myself with a diesel powered Silverado 2500HD without any issues.

Re: What kind of,,,,

Depends on the year of truck as well. My 2009 1 ton is rated to pull 15000. The 2011 or 12, upped their rating to over 20,000.
But to keep it simple, just about any diesel 3/4 or bigger should do it easy.
Biggest problem will be your width. Here in Canada you need a permit for anything wider than 8 1/2 feet. Add signs, flashing light and possibly pilot trucks for anything over 10 feet wide. Check all states you will drive through. There might be time and route restrictions as well.
