Singlehanded sailing:

Autopilot or reliable self steering
Self tailing winches
roller furling head sail
gybe preventer or boom brake
hand held VHF
control lines led aft
slab or simple mainsail reefing system done from the cockpit

For single handed cruising

anchor windlass - electic reversing
all chain rode
SSB (handy not required)

There are many other things that make cruising "better", like heat or refrigeration, or a ife raft, but they do not apply especially to single handed sailing.
