Just some thoughts - but i have a Jeanneau DS40 with inmast and single hand and love it and would not change - i am not a beat the whip racer trying for that last knot - but once i figured it out we get what i consider good performance out of it.
you do have to learn to bring the sail in under pressure to keep it tight - but we reef easily and any can sail with as much or little main sail as we want -
i have been to the bahamas and constantly down the keys on the ocean side without an issue -
i am not a purist nor do i care to be but an practical enough to know what works for me and at 61 yo i like the fact that i can sail the boat from the cockpit
just my thoughts
