IIRC, Brossard was not designed specifically for singlehanding, but often is.
Brossard has only one rudder, the one on the main hull, but it is a pretty deep draft rudder, and works when the main hull is flying a bit... the fins on the aft end of the amas are to help shift the center of lateral resistance aft when flying the main hull IIRC.
As for the lines, I don't know if they're lead to the outboard steering positions, but believe the main sheet is, but not the jib sheets.
Brossard is a cutter rigged trimaran IIRC, not a sloop. Many of the larger racing trimarans are cutter rigged. You can see the multiple headsails on their individual roller furling units...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
