I'm not familiar with the 52.
Since the mid/late-90's until recently, Amel had been marketing only the 53. It was called the Super Maramu. The final version of the 53 was called the Super Maramu Millenium, which came out around the turn of the century/millenium. There may have been some noteworthy differences, but as far as I know the "Millenium" package was the same boat as the previous 53s, but with all the upgraded bells/whistles/goodies included and system improvements. Definitely the same hull.
About a year or two ago, the 53 was discontinued and replaced by the 54, which is an all new hull design, not merely a stretched 53. To my eye, it is a more appealing design, and I prefer the deck and interior layouts to the previous 53. I mentioned recently in another thread that I feel Amel gives over to much living space to "engine room" (particularly shortchanging the galley), but others who do not need all that much cabin space may disagree. I also do not particularly care for the helm station -- preferring the conventional location.
