CHANSON II is a beautiful Vicem 97’. Her traditional cruiser design is built entirely with modern systems and a composite finish. CHANSON II is the perfect union of traditional looks, technology advancements, beautiful decor, ample space inside and out and an unmatched mahogany interior. The interior is designed to ensure luxury on-­board living while coastal or during extended cruising. When boarding CHANSON II, one will find a large aft deck with a built-­in settee and large round teak table for sitting or dining for 8. A day head is accessed from the aft deck. Entering the main saloon, a large full-length settee is to port and a beautiful walk up bar with wine cooler and ample storage is to starboard. Forward of the bar to starboard is a beautiful private stairwell that leads down to the huge private master suite. The master suite offers a king berth and his-and-her heads with a centerline shared shower with Jacuzzi tub. The master has a vanity to starboard and a settee to port as well as ample hanging and storage.

Back in the salon, forward up two steps is the dining room and galley level. Here one will find a dining area to port with a beautiful dining table and seating for eight. Across from the dining area is a large, well-equipped galley. Both the dining area and galley have ample storage for china, crystal and all amenities needed to accommodate guests and crew. Continue moving forward to a fully equipped helm station with dual seating. To port is a dual companion seat. This is a perfect location to enjoy the comfortable ride CHANSON II has to offer. On centerline is a stairwell leading to the three guest staterooms. The VIP is forward with a queen berth, the starboard guest also has a queen berth and the port guest is set up with twin berths. All staterooms are large and comfortable with en­-suite, ample hanging and storage, and complete entertainment. Under the guest companionway is a large storage area with provisions, spares and an extra fringe and freezer.

The flybridge is accessed from the spiral stairway on the aft deck. Once upstairs you will find a spacious bridge deck with a Jacuzzi as well as a sitting and dining area with built-in settee and chairs. Forward to starboard is a full helm and to port is dual seating with a bar located behind. To port there is a large Bar-­B­-Que kept under the hard top as well. All the way aft is a davit for tender storage.

From the main deck, port and starboard covered side decks lead to a pad on the bow, perfect for private sunning. From the aft deck stairs lead down to the cockpit on either side. Here you will find a companionway to spacious crew quarters with two staterooms with two berths each. The crew area has a larger sitting area with table, fridge and freezer, stove top, convection/microwave oven, and washer/dryer. Also within the cockpit is additional storage for water toys and miscellaneous boat supplies. From this location one has easy access to the water for water recreation or to catch the tender to shore.
