Finding the perfect kitchen sink

We're re-doing out whole kitchen, but are hung up on picking up the right kitchen sink.

My wife absolutely wants a drop-in kitchen sink with a built-in drainboard, which is apparently a popular thing in Europe. You can see an example of such a sink in this article about the differences between the way Brits and Americans do their dishes:
The Cultural Divide on Washing Dishes: Brits vs. Americans | Mind The Gap | BBC America

After lots of searching, we have only found two in America. One is at Ikea, however, this model has no pre-drilled holes, and only has room for a single-hole faucet. The other is special order at Home Depot, and is close to $2,000.

We want the traditional three-hole faucet, plus a forth hole for a sprayer. We don't really care if it's a single-bowl, or a double-bowl sink.

Thanks for any help!

My 30 seconds of googling found an option. do a web search for:

Franke USA FDBS703BX Single-Bowl Kitchen Sink w/ Drain Board, Stainless Steel

It is about $100 online.

Yeah, thanks, but that's way too small. That's about the right size for a bar. Besides, it has only 3-holes, and we'd like a sprayer.

Here's one, but it requires a 44" wide sink base cabinet. Most sink base cabinets are only 33 or 36"

If you are getting a stone counter, I would go with a standard under mount sink and single hole faucet with pull down spray. It looks better and has less maintenance than the 3 hole faucet.

Thanks, Handyone.

We have a 36" sink base, and we went with a laminate countertop, so we need drop-in.
