I'm about to get a Granada 24 sailboat and I can't really figure out what type of trailer I need. It would be awesome if someone could explain to me what I need to know to choose the right trailer.

These are the specs of the boat:

Hull type: Mono hull

Keel type: Fin keel (I guess)

Length: 7,20 m

Width: 2,52 m

Draft: 1,25 m

Size: 10,1 m2

Weight: about 1600 kg (without load)

There is very little information on this boat.

Do I need to use a trailer made to measure, or can I use any trailer that can carry any boat of a specific category within its range of specs (keel type, weight, and dimensions)?

You don't need a specific trailer. Just make sure that it's a 2,7 tons trailer with a keel tub.

An example would be the "Wick braked tandem trailer 2700 kg":

From "Wick Trailer" (caution, you've to scroll down and choose the 2700 kg version)

For reference, there is a guy selling this type of a Granada 24 exactly with this trailer on eBay (actually it's from a trademark which doesn't exist anymore but Wick continues to build them):

Der Trailer ist ein 2,7 to NELBACH-Trailer Bauj. Okt.2000, TÜV Aug.2018. ebenfalls sehr gepflegt. (sollte man den Trailer nicht gebrauchen, kann das Boot auch ohne dieses erworben werden.

Translated:

The trailer is a 2,7 t Nelbach from October 2000. (...)

This is going to look somewhat like this:
