Well, the front drain is the catch.  (By "front drain" I assume the drain is at the front edge rather than near the middle.)  The only such unit I find on a quick Google is a one-piece unit.

We currently have a Kohler neo-angle shower (38") with a front drain. But like I said, it's a neo-angle, which might not be what you want (BTW, what shape *do* you want?).

But knowing the shape you're looking for might help.
