Shopping for new Navigation Lights

I am shopping for all new Navigation Lights. I want to go LED all the way:

-Port/Stbd light - preferred one fixture on bow pulpit, something that comes with brackets/ready to install on pulpit without having to fabricate backing plate(s)
-Stern Light
-Tri-Color/Anchor mast light
-Seaming light - does not need to be LED
-Deck/spreader lights - not navigation related, but will be buying with the rest

However, I am having a hard time finding recommendations for new fixtures, most conversations are about replacing bulbs in existing fixtures.

If you were shopping for new LED nav lights, what would you go with and why? Any good product review/comparisons would be helpful.

edit: if it is helpful, the boat is a 1975 Downeaster 38' Cutter
