If the first one is a Baltic it's an older one... most of the Baltics I've seen have somewhat sleeker lines. If it's a tumblehome hull it may be an older Alden if indeed it's a North American design.
The second looks to me like a Chuck Paine design, probably Able Marine or Morris built if not locally custom built. Another outside possibility is the BC built Cooper 501 but if so that's a particularly nice looking example...
The third is clearly a purpose built racer, in all likelihood locally designed and built.. it's not as if you Aussies don't know how to draw and build quick boats!
