Some of you may be questioning our sanity right about now, shouting with smug superiority, "The Cavileer 53 isn't new!" But DiDonato felt that the previous 53 had enough room for improvement that he redesigned the entire boat from top to bottom with the help of the unmatched design skills of Donald Blount. Certainly, with Blount's help the 53 spins up to a higher speed. Other significant differences from the old 53 include a complete redesign of all systems locations for an improved center of gravity. This entailed moving the generator, engines, fuel tankage, batteries and even the pumps. They've all been relocated to generate a more efficient running angle.
