The one with the shortened coach roof looks 'right' compared to the other two IMO. What's the scoop on these "L" boats - obviously not the Lymington class I got with a quick google?
Kiwi Mullet boat originally designed for fishing for mullet and returning to port with the catch as fresh as possible hence the large sail plan.

PC47 on test

Certainly wouldn’t be 47ft oa considering that bowsprit maybe they should have made it retractable like the original pilot cutters had.
Installing a decent Bimini that raked would be a challenge and the form over function lack of headroom would not make me reach for my chequebook in any hurry.

I can’t recall this design. Makes me think Lecomte, but I don’t think so.

Nice old has been. Not quite as old as my has been. Late 60’s?

Easy sailer, mast furling on both sticks. Good coastal boat.

Interesting ‘Why bother’ Bimini between sticks.
