Deck saloon + aft cabin

Hi everyone!
I'm new to this forum and I'm really stoked to see such an active community of sailors.

I'm currently looking for some pretty specific models of sailboats and I hope you can help me find what I want.
I'm looking for a 36 to 43 foot sailboat with a deck saloon and only one big aft cabin. I already found the 1978 Camper and Nicholson 40 DS that has all these but I'd like to know which other models have them.

I'm actually looking to buy one that has these characteristics so if you have some tips on what or where I should look at I'd love to hear from you

Thanks a lot for your help !!

Thanks for your reply.
Actually by deck saloon I meant an inside helm but I don't know if there is a word for this.
I'm looking more for an older (and hopefully cheaper) model.

Re: Deck saloon + aft cabin

I bet many new to sailing get seduced by incide steering. I was but as i looked around my harbor, I saw none and lots of nice well built sailboats. I eventually chose a faster boat which flies in light winds but is good to single sail in 20 Knots (with a big main like a laser- you gotta get comfortable with jibing but the main feeds to 2 winches at the steering wheel). I chose it over Swans (true beauty but needs a good off-shore bermuda wind (not like Long Island Sound, NY... ). Frank
