Common production boats I can singlehand?

I am hoping to stay in Italy for the long term sailing out of Rome.

Looking for a used boat most boats here are at least 35', very common to see 37-44' newer up to ten year old boats.

Jeanneau, Beneteau, Dufour, Comet, Elan and Bavaria seem to be the most common brands.

Any idea for a 10 year old boat for brand, model, length out of the above that are known to be at least passable in terms of singlehanding?

(The 2004 Jeanneau Sun Fast 37 I train on seems very challenging to sail alone as the traveller is in the way and there is no room to move from behind the wheel to reach any winches)

Thanks much,
