I agree with BobPerry but a boat that has winches that you can reach staying near the wheel has an advantage. Another one and even bigger advantage will be a boat with the traveler near the wheel and preferably with a direct mainsheet with a purchase system. That will give you complete control of the main sail from the wheel...and if the winches for the Genoa are at will be perfect

Some Dufour will have it, almost all Comet, Some Elan, the First and all Salona, among others.

A boat with a good D/B ratio, a stiff boat that can forgive a lot, will also be an advantage.
