Autumn/Winter Collection 2011

Welcome to Perspectives D

uring my working life of almost 50 years I cannot remember a time when gloom and doom has prevailed to such an extent as it does now on a worldwide basis. We receive daily reports of financial crises, wars, political uprisings, civil unrest, riots looting and much more. Modern communications bring these events into our lives in graphic detail. It would be remarkable if the housing market was unaffected by all this bad news particularly that which relates to our own economic difficulties. But is the state of the housing market as dire as some commentators would have us believe? True there is a tendency for some to batten down the hatches and stay put if there is no compulsion to move and maybe invest in  improvements to their existing property but they form only a part of the overall market. There are those who are compelled to move because of promotion or business relocation. Others may be trading down to release equity particularly if they are nearing retirement. Equally there are those who see an opportunity for acquiring the house of their dreams on what they may perceive to be reasonable terms. If values fall it is the difference between selling price and buying price which is really significant and this may be little affected. But our statistics belie any significant fall in values. In fact a year on year comparision of sales in July this year compared to last show a rise of 6% in the value per transaction. True properties must be realistically priced and gone are the days when vendors can afford to ignore their agents advice if they are to have any chance of achieving a sale. Another positive however is that mortgage finance has never been more affordable and the prospect is of continuing low interest rates. This is a great incentive for those who see present circumstances as an opportunity for trading up if they are able to afford a realistic deposit from the sale of their existing property. Overall our statistics indicate the market has held its own over the past year and our East Anglia offices have traded particularly well in recent months. In spite of the gloom and doom I therefore remain optimistic we will withstand and even prosper in these difficult times and that as always our clients will benefit from our advice based on our experience of successful trading over many years both good and not so good.”

aint Lucia is the sort of island travellers dream about; a small, authentic Caribbean hideaway which simply oozes individuality and yet is still relatively undeveloped. Located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and Saint Vincent, and north of Barbados, Saint Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide. The Atlantic Ocean graces its eastern shore, whilst the beaches of the west coast meet with the calm Caribbean Sea offering some of the most beautiful beaches, which

Lower interest rates have also played their part and look unlikely to rise in the near future. As we said in our Spring magazine, we expect more of the same over the next 12-18 months.




It has been an interesting year! As our Chairman, Andrew Froude reports in his introduction to the magazine, there have been some turbulent times in the property and financial markets, and indeed globally politically and more recently, the August riots.

In times of such turbulence, it is easy to think the worst of everything but in reality, some parts of the property market have performed relatively well. Certainly prime residential London property has forged ahead but this has not been reflected anywhere else.

Why a tailored survey gives you better value at lower cost

F lor e |






I tailor your survey, so you only pay for what you need, without compromising on essential information. As a specialist in the ailments of period and older houses, I guide you on the appropriate tailoring of your survey to ensure nothing important is missed. Typical options are a survey of a single problem such as damp, a check on just the essential structure of the house, or a comprehensive survey. Your survey even comes with a free 2 year follow-on advice service. This supplements the recommendations within the report for dealing with any defects. This is needed because the correct type of repair work is important to prevent the work creating further problems. This is vital if the house was built before 1940. Knowing which jobs to do first can be difficult. Jobs that look urgent can be relatively unimportant, while the really urgent jobs are less obvious. Your survey report will therefore include an assessment of the importance of any repairs. For an informal discussion about your particular survey needs, ring me without obligation on 01263 734815. If I'm out, leave a message and I'll ring you back. Alternatively, email

THE WO R L D O F PAT E K P H I L I P P E To enter the world of Patek Ph ilippe is to discover a universe where the exception a l is the rule. You are choosing a watch whose tech n ical p erfection an d timeless aesth etic a p p eal ig n ore th e yea rs. You are joining the circle of con n oisseurs for whom only the authentic an d en d u rin g is tru ly b eau tifu l.

Opposite: The Patek Philippe Seal – a hallmark of excellence.

26 | Perspectives Autumn/Winter Collection We inherited our passion for supreme workmanship, our respect for our client and our care for the smallest detail from our two founders. Polish-born aesthete Antoine Norbert de Patek wanted to create the most beautiful watches in the world. His partner, the brilliant inventor Jean-Adrien Philippe, dreamed of pushing back the frontiers of watchmaking technology. Together they laid the foundations of an exacting philosophy that perpetuates and invigorates Geneva’s great watchmaking tradition. From 1839 onwards, fuelled by the volume of know-how passed down from generation to generation and the ceaseless drive to innovate, Patek Philippe has maintained its place at the forefront of fine watchmaking. True to the founders’ values, it has set its own way – always focusing on the long-term view.

To give lasting expression to that philosophy of quality and ensure that it is transmitted to the watchmakers, engineers and artisans of the future, Patek Philippe has created its own quality hallmark. The Patek Philippe Seal goes beyond the Swiss watchmaking industry’s recognized criteria. It is the only hallmark applying to the entire watch – the movement and the external elements – from concept to after-sales service, including the way it is built and finished and the checking of its functions and rate accuracy.

mission within the company reflects our resolute intention of passing down this heritage to future generations, just as our clients pass down their watch. The passage from third to fourth generation in autumn 2009* confirmed that the links are as strong as ever. As the guardians of the Patek Philippe quality and spirit, we shall do everything required to continue producing “the most beautiful watches in the world”. Philippe Stern, Honorary President

Our company’s independence and family ownership enable us to guarantee that we shall never compromise in terms of the perfection of our watches. Having presided over Patek Philippe’s destiny from father to son since 1932, we ourselves have all grown up in and with the manufacture. We bear the genes of Patek Philippe and out devotion to our

In 2009, the Calatrava Reference 5153 in an Officer-style case with a hinged back was launched as a new yellow gold version with a silvery opaline dial. Now, it celebrates a stylish comeback with a white gold case and a striking black dial featuring a hand-guilloched center.

Reworked in 2009, the casually elegant line of Nautilus watches for women now welcomes the Ladies Automatic Nautilus, its first diamond-set steel models with selfwinding movements. The dials, featuring the emblematic Nautilus embossing, are available in various styles, among them as precious blue-tinted or black Tahician mother-of-pearl versions.

How to choose your home mover. Royal Warrant holders Abels have decades of experience in making one of life’s most stressful experiences as worry-free as possible. Abels Moving Services, UK Managing Director John Watson offers some advice on selecting the best moving partner. Moving day is a critical step in the demanding, and some may consider stressful, process of relocating.That’s why you’ll need to plan it thoroughly and choose your moving partner with the same care as you would your estate agent and solicitor, more so as they will of course be entrusted with handling your valuable possessions, cherished heirlooms and your memorabilia. There are several key stages. Start talking to moving companies as soon as your house is on the market.At the same time do your homework by researching the company or companies that you plan to talk to. Ask friends who they used, check the companies’ websites and establish that the people you’re talking to have a good reputation. Importantly, make sure as a minimum quality standard that they belong to the British Association of Removers. A maximum of three quotes, to avoid it getting too confusing from good quality BAR member companies, will give you a good fair comparison. Next, ask for the company’s moving surveyor to visit you.Your home is unique, so make a list of any special points or aspects they should be aware of and questions you need to ask. If you’re briefing more than one company make sure the same person talks to all of them, using the same notes.This will give the company a clear, first-hand opportunity to establish the size of the project and identify any special professional requirements such as moving a piano. It also means that you’ll be able to compare quotes like for like instead of each company receiving differing information/requests which could

affect the price and importantly what is/is not included in the service. It’s from this visit that the quotation will be prepared. Be wary of advertisements that promise too much, and websites that suggest you can get a price by ticking boxes online. It’s unrealistic to expect a fair and accurate quote unless they’ve visited your home and this could lead to added cost, or the move not being completed as you would have hoped. A key deciding factor must be when you visit their offices. If they don’t offer – just pop along one day unannounced, you may be surprised what you find (or don’t find)! Ask to see their vehicles and warehouses and their training area/school. It will give you a good idea of their facilities and the level of care they’ll take with your possessions. Employing a company who have conducted a proper survey of your home and run a fleet of modern, removal vehicle pantechnicons, manned by loyal, dedicated, highly-trained crews is the way to ensure peace of mind and a stress-free move. Which is where Abels Moving Services comes into its own.With decades of experience, moving and caring for discerning customers and holding the Queens Royal Warrant for Removals & Storage since 1989 we have a worldwide reputation within the industry of providing a quality, value for money service. From your first call to our head office, where you will speak with a dedicated move coordinator specifically knowledgeable to your country of destination, through the home survey with a customer services manager moving specialist who will provide a complimentary removal proposal.This includes the careful protection of your home, packing of your possessions and handling of your furniture, to the safe delivery into your new home and placement into rooms and positions of your choosing.You can rely on Abels to take a load off your mind, we are large enough to cope, yet small enough to care about each and every move.

The market conditions throughout 2011 to date have continued to prove challenging with supply and demand in a fragile balance. The limited supply of buyers demand that realistic pricing is set and we are still finding good prices are being achieved and in some instances competitive circumstances are still ensuing.

Our rental department continues to expand and we have seen a significant increase in demand for properties to rent and a quantifiable increase in rental values, which we continue to experience. We offer services from let only to full management and either Amanda Duffy or Leonora Swiney would be delighted to be of assistance if you require any information on this side. The key to selling in these difficult market conditions is excellent presentation, wide exposure and realistic marketing price and provided these are adhered to we are still experiencing demand for good quality property.





Of particular note the Newmarket office was successful in the sale of The Courtyard in Balaton Place early this year, which was marketed at a guide price of £2.95 million, a sale being agreed within three weeks of being released to the market with three parties competing.

We continue to strive to provide an exceptional service to our clients backed up by sound and professional advice with a sales team which benefits without doubt from the greatest depth of knowledge and experience in the Newmarket and surrounding area property market and if you would like to discuss any property matters with us do not hesitate to contact either of the partners, Philip Gilbey or Jock Lloyd-Jones, who will be delighted to assist.

A Thoroughbred Heritage

Behind the scenes of the showcase of Thoroughbred Breeding with Rachael Gowland


he National Stud stands on 520 acres on the outskirts of the Suffolk town of Newmarket which is known as the Headquarters of British Racing. The Stud has been open to the public since the mid 1970s. The origins of The National Stud actually date back to 1915 when Colonel Hall Walker (later Lord Wavertree) presented his Thoroughbred stallions, mares, yearlings, foals and horses in training to the British Government as a gift. This gift was made on the understanding that the Government purchased from him 1,000 acres of land at Tully, Co. Kildare, Ireland. The original aim was to establish a British National Stud that would supply high-quality lightweight horses for the Cavalry. However, given the changing nature of 20th Century warfare and its increasing levels of mechanisation, the need for these horses declined soon after the project was started.

17t h April 19 67 The Q u een p lants a com m emorative tree at the officia l op en ing of The National Stud.

The British Government decided to retain the Stud and focus on breeding high-quality Thoroughbreds for racing instead. Success came quickly to the new operation; Blandford, who was foaled in 1919 and bred by The National Stud, became one of the most successful sires of the 1920s and 30s, breeding 11 Classic winners including 4 Derby winners. Other Classic winning products of the early National Stud included Royal Lancer, Big Game, Chamossaire and Carrozza. Ownership of the Stud transferred to the Irish Government in 1943 and The National Stud moved to Sandley Stud in Dorset and an overflow site at West Grinstead in Sussex. In 1963 the newly-established Levy Board was directed to run the Stud and five hundred acres in Newmarket were leased from the Jockey Club in order to build a state-of-the-art facility. Peter Burrell (Stud Director at the time) was responsible for the layout of yards around the Stud as they are seen today and these blocks were named after well-known 19th Century Jockey Club members. The new site of The National Stud was officially opened by The Queen on 17th April 1967. 1973 saw Paul Mellon’s brilliant Mill Reef retire to the Stud to begin a hugely successful career as a stallion. During his illustrious racing career Mill Reef won the Epsom Derby (1971), the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and the Coronation Cup. During his time at stud he sired two Derby winners - Shirley Heights and Reference Point. Today a statue of him stands in front of the Stallion Unit in memory of this great racehorse.

In April 2008 the Jockey Club acquired The National Stud. As well as beginning a new chapter for the organisation it marked another political shift as the Stud became a private company, no longer being owned by the state. The National Stud continues to stand stallions of the highest calibre which produce offspring who have achieved prices of nearly £200,000 each in the sales ring and who have won races all over the world at the highest level. The current flagship stallion is Bahamian Bounty who is 17 years old and who commands a stud fee of £10,000 per mare! Other stars include Cockney Rebel, who won the 2000 Guineas just across the heath at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse in 2007, and Pastoral Pursuits who won even closer to home when in 2005 he was victorious in the July Cup which is run on the July Racecourse adjoining the Stud itself! The Stud also boards mares for their owners while they produce their foals and visit stallions in the Newmarket area. The breeding season starts each

The Stud has facilities to board 200 mares and their foals and provides services not only to look after broodmares but also to sell people’s horses at the many large public auctions around the country. The Stud’s full-time education and training programmes started in the mid- 1980s and continue to be extremely well-respected to this day. They represent the main access for Stud staff into the Thoroughbred breeding industry. The Diploma in Stud Practice and Management is a 5-month residential course aimed at people with experience in the Thoroughbred industry who wish to progress and gain experience to become the industry leaders of the future. There is also an entry-level programme called the Apprentice Course (also residential). There has been significant investment in the student programmes in recent years and the Stud now boasts not only a state-of-the-art lecture theatre and stable complex for

The Stallion Unit. In the foreground is the bust of Peter Burrell, National Stud Director 1957-1971.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of The National Stud is the farm’s decision to open its doors to the public each day so anyone and everyone can learn about breeding horses and see how a commercial stud farm operates. The National Stud opened its gates to the public for the first time in the mid 1970s. To this day it remains the only working stud farm in the UK allowing individuals, small groups and large parties the chance to see behind the scenes of the industry. Public tours run twice daily from 15th February until the end of September and then once a day until the end of October. Visitors are able to experience day-today life on the Stud and at different times of the year they are able to see young foals, mares and yearlings as well as the Stallions out in their paddocks. Their resident equine legend is 2004 Grand National winner Amberleigh House who was trained by Ginger McCain (the trainer of the most famous Grand National winner in history - Red Rum). For the 2012 season, The National Stud has expanded its range of tours so that pre-booked groups can arrange to visit a host of attractions in the town during their visit to Newmarket. These specialist tours include a visit to the famous Newmarket gallops; visits to trainers’ yards and veterinary hospitals; tickets to see bands and pop groups playing at Newmarket Racecourse on summer Friday nights; trips to the start of races; access to the weighing rooms at the racecourses and visits to sample the historic and beautiful Jockey Club Rooms amongst many others - the possibilities really are endless!

Artist in Residence Chris Winch. Under a new scheme initiated by the Stud in 2010 Chris took up residency at the Stud to give those visiting the opportunity to observe a talented local artist at work and to see how having a base at the Stud can influence their work. an open air studio. Visitors can observe the current artist Chris Winch at work most days and they can also see and buy examples of his work from his pavilion gallery next to the Coffee Shop. Tours of the Stud are taken both by coach and on foot with your own experienced guide; tours last around 1hr 30mins. The popularity of the tours means it is essential to book in advance but the friendly Tours team are happy to accommodate coaches and large groups by appointment along with any special requirements visitors may have. Tour times: 11.15am and 2.00pm daily from 15th February to end of September (groups and coaches by arrangement). Coffee Shop Opening Times: 9.00am to 4.30pm daily (7 days/week including Bank Holidays).

In addition to the tours, Wavertree’s Coffee and Gift Shop is open all year round for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. All the cakes are home-made and the food is freshly cooked to order. The gift shop not only boasts unique gifts for all ages but it offers an extensive collection of equestrian art displayed on the walls to suit all budgets.

Jeremy Smallman, Schuyler Pratt Although 2011 may not be remembered fondly by many, all is not doom & gloom. In our Spring/Summer Edition we predicted that the gains in the Stock Market and healthy City bonuses would have a beneficial effect on our market. In early May we generated healthy competition for a Georgian Old Vicarage in Feering, which sold well in excess of what we considered to be a realistic guide price,

whilst in June a property close to Chelmsford attracted over 30 viewings which resulted in 14 bids and a sale price 20% higher than the quoted guide.

Admittedly the summer months have been quieter than usual (not helped by the jitters seen in the City) and although we have seen a reduction in the numbers of properties changing hands this year, house prices in our region appear to have

Although we expect the number of prospective purchasers with the ability to buy to be limited this Autumn, those properties that are realistically priced should still attract interest.

Quentin Jackson-Stops, Richard Jones In spite of turmoil in the euro zone and recent stock market falls, our Northampton office has performed better than expected over the summer months and while market conditions remain testing, we have continued to list and sell properties at all levels. It is notable that there is a strong market for smaller houses and cottages to refurbish in the £200,000 to £400,000 price level and to date in 2011 we have taken seven properties in this bracket to “best and final offers” where competitive interest has developed. However, pricing

remains the key to a successful sale at all levels in the residential property market. Proposing vendors should be aware that some unscrupulous agents may well overvalue their property just to secure the instruction, so ask the agent to support their “valuation” with hard evidence of similar properties already sold. A leading property portal has reported that 70% of the properties listed on their site in 2011 remained unsold at the beginning of September – a sure sign of the overpricing malaise. Recent instructions include Wicken Manor at Wicken, an historic 17th century country house with six bedrooms and an attached cottage set in park like grounds of four acres on the borders of Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire (£1,950,000); Grafton House at Upper Harlestone, a six bedroom house, with a two bedroom detached cottage, in one of the prettiest villages on Earl Spencer’s Althorp estate (£825,000); several new homes in Mears Ashby, Titchmarsh and Great Doddington with prices ranging from £479,000 to £650,000; The Garth in The Avenue at Dallington, an exceptional townhouse, over

three floors, with six bedrooms and four bathrooms (£865,000); Rocks Farm at Stoke Goldington, a charming five bedroom former farmhouse in a stunning four acre rural setting (£1,295,000) and Hyde Farm at Roade, an interesting equestrian property with an historic medieval house, stabling, lake and land extending to ten acres (£925,000). In April, we predicted that prices were likely to stay level over the course of 2011, however, prices have fallen slightly and may continue to do so until the end of the year. The good news is that interest rates remain low and look likely to do so for some time to come and with share values falling, tangible assets, such as gold, come in to their own and amongst this category is property and land. Richard Jones and Quentin Jackson-Stops continue in their aim to provide an exceptional service to their clients and would be delighted, should you decide to sell, to value your property, without obligation.

Garden Inspirations... Ever since English gardens began to be influenced by those of Italy, urns, fountains and statues have found an honourable, often the most honourable, place in their scheme. They contribute to the embellishment and magnificence of a garden, whether large or small, terraced or open-ground.

WHY HADDONSTONE? Haddonstone is a unique form of cast limestone with a surface texture similar to Portland stone. The material matures and weathers like natural stone yet, piece for piece, normally costs significantly less than quarried stone. The ability to mould the Haddonstone material into almost any shape ~ faithfully reproducing new designs or producing replicas that are virtually indistinguishable from an antique original ~ has won the company numerous contracts ranging from leading international hotels and retail developments to listed National Trust properties and prestige residential projects. Each design is hand made by Haddonstone in Northamptonshire using moulds created within the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive mould shops and studios. Using these same facilities Haddonstone can even manufacture nonstandard architectural stone pieces to practically any shape, size or colour. As Haddonstone maintains original models and/or moulds for every single design in the standard collection, and utilises the very latest vapour curing technology, customers can be reassured that the high quality of each stone produced is incredibly consistent whilst retaining the individuality of a hand-made product. The company even offers a five year warranty on cast stone garden ornaments.

And, Haddonstone can be an enjoyable investment. At a recent Sothebyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auction, four Haddonstone Plaited Baskets sold for more than twenty times their current retail value. Haddonstone ~ one of the few things in life that can grow more beautiful and valuable with the passing of the years.

VISIT THE SHOWGARDENS At East Haddon, in the rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Haddonstone has beautiful show gardens and an interior showroom where visitors can see many of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designs ~ from planters, fountains and statuary to balustrading, fireplaces and follies. The garden and showroom are open every week from Monday to Friday ~ public holidays and Christmas period excepted ~ between the hours of 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. Brown tourism signs guide visitors to the gardens from the A428.

Traditionally, the summer months of July and August see a slow down and almost complete inertia in the property market. At the same time, it is a period which reflects the hard work carried out in the country house market throughout the selling months of March, April, May and June. With deals done in the selling season, ‘careful handling’ is required to ensure the champagne moment of ‘sale agreed’ translates through to the all important ‘contracts exchanged’. As much work, if not more, goes on behind the scenes to ensure the deal goes through. In this day and age of restricted money supply, full structural surveys and lawyers pouring over every point – the time from point of sale to deal legally put to bed gets ever longer and more frustrating. Having said all that, we are pleased to report our best ever quarter, as we serviced a record number of houses, both in volume and value. Whilst the world markets continue to be battered by depressing financial news, we are seeing stability in bricks and mortar, which, like gold, proves a safe haven in troubled times. With low interest rates now and not looking to rise in the foreseeable future, we see a steady market being maintained through the autumn and into 2012.

Oyster 100

Perspectives Autumn/Winter Collection | 89

L-R: Ed Dubois (Dubois Naval Architects), David Tydeman (Oyster Group) and Ufuk Güçlü (RMK Marine)


The UK’s most successful builder of large series-produced cruising yachts, Oyster have more than earned their well-deserved worldwide reputation for quality and luxury. Now for the first Oyster Superyacht!

Oyster’s head office is based in Suffolk with offices in the USA, Germany and now most recently the Mediterranean. Oyster also work with a number of respected marine industry professionals in Asia, Italy and Russia who act as company representatives. Founded in 1973, Oyster Marine have established themselves as international market leaders of world-class cruising yachts. With their distinctive Deck Saloon design, Oyster yachts are recognised throughout the sailing world for quality, comfort and performance. Frequently seen sailing the River Orwell en route to the Oyster commissioning marina, these days around half of their new construction is for existing owners. This loyalty sends a strong message to new customers thinking of joining what they like to refer to as ‘the Oyster family’. Owning an Oyster is almost a right of passage. A passport to that ‘special place’ in life where you can truly relax and enjoy yourself to the full. In fact, the Oyster ownership experience is like no other because, for nearly forty years, Oyster Marine has built more than 1400 yachts for people with the desire and ambition to live their own personal dream on the water. Each with a passion for sailing, a spirit of adventure, a real enjoyment of family activities, strong friendships and good living, not to mention a keen appreciation of the very finest in craftsmanship and luxury. Of course, sea-kindly handling, sparkling performance and ocean-proven cruising ability are other attractions within this seductive mix. As a result, the Oyster marque is now widely-recognised and respected around the world, not only for the uniqueness of its deck saloon designs, but for unmatched

build quality, supreme performance and a quite outstanding level of customer communication and after-sales support. Oyster originally introduced the term Deck Saloon to the nautical vocabulary and, although the concept has since been widely emulated, they are still the unchallenged leaders nearly four decades later. Rob Humphreys, one of Britain’s best known and longest-established naval architects, is responsible for all the yachts in the Oyster range from the 46 to the new 885, whilst with the new Oyster Superyachts, the 100 and 125, Ed Dubois, acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost Superyacht designers, was an obvious choice to lead the Oyster team in the development of the ultimate Oysters. From the very beginning, Oyster’s mission has been to build an international reputation for supreme standards of design and build, blended with outstanding levels of customer service and after-sales support. The pursuit of true excellence is a never-ending voyage, but one to which Oyster is totally committed. When you choose an Oyster, you choose excellence - not mere quality. Today’s Oysters are very different to the yachts built over 35 years ago, but the core values of strength, seaworthiness and a multitude of practical, seamanlike features remain, testament to the experience gained from sailing hundreds of thousands of miles in Oyster yachts.

Sarafin's launch marks the successful conclusion of the first phase of a long-term project, which has brought together the strong, award-winning trio of Dubois Naval Architects, Oyster Group and RMK Marine. This combined experience has produced a Superyacht that matches the best in the world and offers every customer the opportunity to enjoy the smoothest process available for getting afloat, providing a sophisticated entry into Superyacht ownership. The concept, launched in the heyday of the pre-recession world, is even more appropriate today; building a one-off custom superyacht is a challenging venture. The market, during recession, has seen the determined buyer move larger, into 50m - 100m sailing yacht projects. The Oyster-Dubois-RMK series-produced offering of the Oyster 100 and Oyster 125 gives a purchaser, who wants a more predictable and faster means of owning a proven Superyacht, a less time-demanding (during build) solution of getting afloat. By selecting a series-produced yacht, owners share the benefits of proven design, construction and engineering, and

Launch of the first Oyster Superyacht OYSTER 100 Oyster Marine have launched their much-anticipated first Oyster Superyacht, 100-01 Sarafin, which successfully completed her sailing trials ahead of handover to her owners in October.

Oyster 100 Stateroom

90 | Perspectives Autumn/Winter Collection The all-important relationship between designer and builder is crucial to the success of any project. We now have over 50 yachts afloat of 100ft and over in the world, and this experience combines with that of the best shipyards to keep the quality at the top. We are therefore delighted that Oyster have joined this club and we look forward with confidence and excitement to see the Oyster 125 also reaching completion." Oyster 100

can devote their attention to stamping their individuality on the interior. Oyster's commitment to build these superyachts to Lloyds +100A1 G6 MCH and MCA LY2 classification, the most stringent in the world guaranteeing the structural integrity and engineering of each yacht, is not only the highest endorsement of the Oyster Superyacht fleet's quality of construction, but underpins the continued value of each owner's investment. The Oyster 100 is designed with the specification, features and classification of very much larger yachts. The standard accommodation layout offers three staterooms aft and two crew cabins forward. A raised saloon offers a panoramic view and leads forward and down to a more intimate lounge and separate dining area. Forward of the main living area is the crew mess, galley and two crew cabins. A six-cabin variant is also available, offering a fourth double guest cabin forward, in addition to the two crew cabins. Sarafin will spend some time in Palma, Mallorca before heading for a winter season in the Caribbean. She is expected to take part in the St Barth's Bucket Regatta in March 2012. Oyster CEO, David Tydeman commented: "Oyster Group is world renowned for its craftsmen built and solidly engineered blue-water cruising yachts. What is less well known is that Oyster also owns Southampton Yacht Services, a yard specialising in classic Superyacht refit and refurbishment. Oyster Group was already in the 'Superyacht market' prior to the launch of the Oyster 100 and 125, and by teaming up with Dubois and leading shipyard RMK Marine, builders of the award winning 52m ketch, Nazenin V, has given us the opportunity to challenge all parts of Oyster Group and pull together its hidden talents.

Of course, creating such a start-up in the current global economic conditions, has been a tough challenge, which we've risen above and delivered. I'm intensely proud and somewhat in awe of the Oyster and RMK team who has made this happen in the face of regular scepticism from the established market who naturally want to resist a newcomer! The Oyster 100 is not simply a large Oyster 82, we have raised our game and risen to the challenge, entering the premier league of engineering and shipbuilding large yachts. The new Oyster 885, which will be on the water in 2012, illustrates that what we are learning from entering the Superyacht market is already enabling Oyster to enhance our whole range – from the Oyster 46 to the Oyster 125." Ed Dubois writes after visiting the completed Oyster 100-01: "I was very happy as I left the shipyard in Istanbul, having seen the first completed Oyster 100. It is wonderful how Oyster have managed to combine their reputation for building strong, seaworthy craft with the quality and finish that is now expected in the best sailing Superyachts. As designers, we are of course full of admiration for the builders of our craft and at the same time very particular about who we work with.

Oyster 100 Deck

Ufuk Güçlü, General Manager at RMK shipyard said: "RMK Marine has always believed in the benefits of this unique partnership. It is a very special opportunity to work with Dubois and Oyster and it is very satisfying the potential has been realised. Working closely together as a team, each party has brought its own special contribution to the end product and through this teamwork we are providing wonderful yachts for the clients. We are certain that this team will continue to enjoy success together. For RMK Marine, our aim is always to provide uncompromising quality and craftsmanship. Having completed our first Oyster yacht in composite, we are proud to have built in all the major build materials used in the superyacht sector, including steel, aluminium and now composites for both motor and sailing yachts, which demonstrates the unusually wide capability of the RMK yard. We will keep on pushing forward and aim to deliver superb quality yachts to our clients and we look forward to launching the next Oyster superyacht in the near future." Oyster would like to thank all its suppliers for their help in developing the Oyster Superyachts, in particular North Sails, Lewmar and Hall Spars.

INTERNATIONALLYRENOWNED ARTIST ANNA BOULTON we ask wh at makes h er tick? Enticed by the oceans, Anna Boulton captures the thrill of racing in her paintings. A keen sailor from a young age, she has now finally got the chance to combine her love for art and sailing. Currently based in Antigua (West Indies) and England, Anna is regularly commissioned by yacht owners to produce paintings of (and for the interiors of) their boats.

How did you get involved with sailing? My early years were spent in the Middle East on the shores of the Arabian Gulf where I learnt to swim and surf almost as soon as I could walk. When I was eight years old, my parents bought me a little single-handed sailing boat (a “Topper”) and by the time I was nine I was racing with the other expatriate children in and out of the harbour. Were your parents keen sailors? Yes, they both raced high-tech catamarans very successfully, competing in a number of international championships. Oil on Canvas - Yacht Celandine

Have you sailed competitively? I spent my teenage years living around Chichester Harbour where every summer I would race dinghies at Itchenor and Bosham Sailing Clubs and at Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Do you still participate in racing? Yes, I recently had the great pleasure of racing aboard the beautiful sailing yacht ‘Bolero’ for the Antigua Classic Regatta.

What encouraged you to paint and where did you learn? From an early age the warmth and stunning colours of the Arabian Gulf and the sight of the old sailing dhows sparked off a great affinity with the sea. It was always clear to me that art was the direction I wanted to follow. I gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Falmouth College of Art and Design.

Oil on Canvas - Stormy Catlins Beach, NZ

What inspired you at university? During my degree course, I spent time at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Venice where I fell completely under the spell of Venice and, seeing the super yachts moored off the Piazza San Marco, I knew I had to be involved with boats and the sea again. Did you go back to Venice after you graduated? Yes, as soon as I completed my degree I returned there to do an internship at the Peggy Guggenheim Art Museum where I expanded my knowledge of early twentieth century art and spent much of my time photographing the architecture and canals of the city.

Perspectives Autumn/Winter Collection | 93 Islands where I presented one of my paintings as a prize. I am due to have solo exhibitions at Harmony Hall in Antigua at the beginning of January 2012 and again at Jumby Bay.

Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - Adrenaline, The Start (America's Cup)

How did you become a professional painter? After Venice, I spent several years crewing on yachts around the world, but art was always in the back of my mind and, when I had saved enough money, I set up a studio in Queenstown, New Zealand, where I began painting in earnest, inspired by the fabulous scenery of the South Island. There I found a lucrative market in painting lakes and mountains for tourists and in producing portraits of local people’s dogs with an occasional farmer’s prize sheep! It was at this stage I found I could make a living purely by painting. My confidence grew and I was approached by various galleries wanting to display my work. Why did you leave Queenstown, New Zealand? After four years in Queenstown, even though I was inspired by the spectacular lakes and mountains of the South Island, I missed the sea and sailing, so I headed for Auckland in the North Island.

You’re extremely well travelled! Where are you currently based? I know I’ve been lucky to have seen the places I’ve seen. I am currently based in Antigua but during the summer of 2011 I was painting in Palma (Mallorca). At the end of September 2011 I was in St Tropez for the Classic Yacht Regatta, photographing and crewing on the beautiful sailing yachts that race in the Mediterranean. I plan to put together a body of work over the next year based on the photographs I took there. Have you exhibited your work? Early in 2011 I set up a studio in Antigua, West Indies where I exhibited in the prestigious Jumby Bay Resort. I was also invited to be a sponsor for the Super Yacht Regatta in the British Virgin

Your portraits are stunning. Do you experiment with different techniques in your paintings? I work predominantly in oil on canvas or wood and, for my abstract work, acrylic and mixed media, throwing in the odd piece of Kevlar sailcloth. In New Zealand I produced a number of paintings based on the America’s Cup yachts and was very happy to be given an old America’s Cup sail to incorporate into the work. In this series I experimented with light reflecting paint to recreate the effect of light as it touches the sails and the sea. These paintings change dramatically as light hits the surface from different angles. I also like to try new techniques on canvas, such as adding and overlaying structures of the yachts. And what would you say your crucial aim is in your work? The sea remains a constant theme throughout my work and I aim, in particular, to portray the thrill and excitement of the race, with hulls smashing through the waves and spray flying across the canvas. Anna Boulton E-mail:

When were you first commissioned to paint a ‘yacht portrait’? When I arrived in Auckland I caught up with the yachting fraternity again and it was whilst I was there that I received my first commission. From then on I followed the yachts from the Antipodes to the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, moving with the seasons and painting yachts in some stunning locations. Anna Boulton - Working in Palma

The Reydon Hall Sale It is a sad fact but the true country house auction appears to be a thing of the past, lost in a time when the austerity of post-war Britain coupled with the financial troubles of the 1930s brought about the forced dispersal of the contents of many of our most beautiful and historic country houses. Picture the scenes: auctioneers perched on makeshift rostrums in stable yards or outbuildings selling everything from Rembrandts to rotary mowers; and of course tales abound of precious treasures purchased for a song... But on December 6th the international auction house of Bonhams, itself founded in the reign of George III, will briefly revive the tradition, albeit in the comfort of their Knightsbridge auction rooms, as the delights of The Reydon Hall Collection come under the hammer.

1: Edward Smythe (1810-99) Bay pony & sheepdog. Estimate £2,500-3,500 2: Thomas Smythe (1826-1906) Winter - Horse & cart. Estimate £2,500-3,500 3: Edward Smythe (1810-99) The Suffolk Hounds. Estimate £1,500 - £2,000 4: Edward Smythe (1810-99) Woolpit Horse Fair. Estimate £15,000-20,000

In 1951 brothers John and Raymond Le Grys started a turkey farm in north east Suffolk and over 25 years the business grew to achieve an annual turnover of £2.5 million, eventually being taken over by Bernard Matthews Ltd in 1976. In the mid-1950s the brothers, buoyed by the early success of their business venture, purchased Reydon Hall, a large 17th Century country house near Southwold and duly took great pleasure in furnishing its many rooms. As a result, their collection (in many instances purchased from some of the legendary country house sales of the 1950s and ‘60s)is a wonderful mix of fine furniture, silver, ceramics and most notably, one of the best collections of 19th Century Suffolk paintings ever to come to sale. Foremost in the collection are the paintings of the Ipswich brothers Edward and Thomas Smythe, renowned for their charming and beautifully observed depictions of rural and domestic Suffolk life during the mid to late years of the 19th

Century; and with over 100 works in the sale this is probably the largest collection ever sold. These are affordable pictures - estimates for the paintings start in the low £100s - but the most important lots are two monumental works by older brother Edward. The first, a commission painted in 1865, is of the Master, Hunt Servants and hounds of the Suffolk Hunt in the parkland before Euston Hall. A similarly large scale work shows Woolpit Horse Fair - a subject Edward painted at least four times (the current world record price for a work by Smythe was for another version of this painting which sold in 2008 for £32,450). Both pictures carry similar estimates at £15,000-20,000. Although not painting on the same scale as his older brother, Thomas Smythe is more than a match in the auction rooms, his paintings became instantly recognisable during the 1970s and ‘80s when his famous snow scenes became widely reproduced on Christmas cards - his lively snowballing scene is a rare subject however, hence the estimate of £7,000-10,000. The Reydon Hall Collection will be sold on 6 December in Knightsbridge. The entire collection will be previewed on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 November at The Athenaeum in Bury St Edmunds when it will be shown alongside Bonhams’ annual sale of East Anglian paintings. The East Anglian Paintings Sale takes place on 15 November in Knightsbridge and includes works by notable 19th and 20th Century Norfolk and Suffolk artists including Sir Alfred Munnings, Mary Fedden, Maggi Hambling, Campbell Mellon and Edward Seago, estimates ranging from £300-£20,000.

It is interesting to note that all three properties sold to regional buyers looking to trade up, underlining the fact that there are still good demand for the best quality properties from regional as well as London buyers.

In particular the market for properties with significant acreage has been strong and we have recently sold several properties of this type including Hollybush House at Chevington which had 68 acres, Pattles Grove at Whepstead, which offered 36 acres and West Stow Lodge which sat in 10 acres.

Looking ahead to the Autumn and Winter, whilst we are conscious of the challenging market conditions we feel confident that there is good business to be done and are ready to rise to the challenges of the market.

Oliver Peacock, Matthew Cutting

We expect the next six months will probably see fewer properties coming to the market but those seriously committed vendors and purchasers will still find opportunities to trade in the run up to Christmas and the New Year. The market is far less seasonal than used to be the case, however, if you are thinking of selling either over the Autumn/Winter or indeed in the Spring now is the time to take advice. Vendors seeking to launch early in the New Year may like to consider organising photographs of their property now whilst the leaves are on the trees and the gardens still have some colour.

Hollybush House, Chevington


The Bury St Edmunds office has enjoyed an extremely active Spring and Summer and despite the ongoing economic concerns we have found that there are still large numbers of genuine buyers seeking quality town and country property.

This summer we were proud to sponsor the Elveden Dog day in aid of the Alzheimer’s society. This inaugural event was co supported by Purina foods and the Elveden estate where it was hosted, and proved highly successful - we look forward to supporting them at the show next year!

Marco Pierre White, British celebrity chef, restaurateur & television personality

Elizabeth Baxendale travels to Lavenham in Suffolk to meet world-famous celebrity chef, restaurateur and television personality Marco Pierre White as The Angel at Lavenham opens its doors to become the latest Marco Pierre White Wheeler's of St. James's venue.

The Angel, Lavenham in Suffolk Mesmeric, magnetic, totally charismatic and attractively dishevelled... yes it did not take his spell too long to work its magic! At the time the youngest chef ever (aged 33 years) to be awarded three Michelin stars, Marco Pierre White has gone on to become a world-famous celebrity chef, restaurateur and television personality. Noted as much for his fiery and tempestuous personality as for his contributions to contemporary international cuisine and his quite exceptional culinary skills, Marco realised his dream to replicate one of the great French restaurants at a still relatively young age. “I opened my first restaurant in January 1987. In 1988 I got awarded my first Michelin star. In 1990 I got my second. And in January 1995 I got my third.” On Thursday 15th September 2011 The Angel at Lavenham in Suffolk opened its doors to celebrate its launch as Marco Pierre White’s latest Wheeler’s of St. James’s venue and to raise money at the same time for the most worthy of causes, the charity ‘Help for Heroes’. In November 2009 Marco flew to Afghanistan to cook an early Christmas dinner for our troops on the front line, an oft-unreported and little recognised fact. “It was a life-changing experience,” he said at the time. “It was a very sad place and it does move you. I decided to make the trip after visiting Basra in Iraq in 2008. It was very much a morale-boosting trip, cooking for 80 squaddies and handing out gifts. I also presented a bravery award to bomb disposal heroes in Helmand Province.” ‘Help for Heroes’ is indeed a cause which remains close to Marco’s heart.

The Angel, an impressive Grade II listed building situated on the corner of one of undoubtedly the most beautiful and tranquil market squares in the country, was just one of the gems which attracted Marco to put in a bid to purchase the portfolio of six pub/hotel/restaurant businesses in Suffolk, Norfolk and Wiltshire, all of which he successfully acquired from the Administrators of the Maypole Group in March 2011. Marco’s acquisition of the six businesses was a fantastic and very welcome result during what was a particularly stressful and uncertain time for the Group’s 200-plus Eastern Region-based employees. With refurbishments now also well-underway at The Lifeboat Inn and The Old Coach House at Thornham in Norfolk (both sites remaining open and with disturbance kept to a minimum, their official launch nights planned for Spring 2012), Marco, as is characteristic of him, is giving much of his time, passion and energy in creating lovely environments in which visitors and locals alike can eat, drink and be merry.

The Lifeboat Inn, Thornham in Norfolk

If the Lavenham locals thought Marco would be simply just a name above the front door then they were very much mistaken. He has become a part of the local community and it very evidently gives everyone a real lift to see him walking about both The Angel and Lavenham itself, affably rubbing shoulders with all and sharing a glass or two when he has time.

Under Marco’s expert care and nurturing tutelage his young, enthusiastic but experienced team, such as the very affable and attentive Yorkshire-born General Manager Emma Bennett and efficient and talented Head Chef Adam Pickard, are relishing the opportunity of working with him and rising to the daily challenges his high expectations present.

The restaurant at The Angel now boasts a revamped and stylish interior, the walls adorned with Marco’s own extensive collection of JAKS and David Hughes bright cartoons and caricatures. Elegant tables are dressed in warm antique lace exuding affordable glamour.

Says Emma, the perfect Front of House appointment for The Angel, a girl with the ability to make one feel at ease and welcome the minute one walks through the door, “To work with someone like Marco is like a dream come true for me. To be able to be part of something which is so brand new, to be able to influence decisions and to see your ideas and thoughts evolving and respected is incredibly exciting. I am still pinching myself! He has such high standards and knows exactly what he wants. It is very hard work but equally the past few months have been so rewarding.”

The Angel offers quintessential yet affordable Marco Pierre White dishes alongside fine wines and cask ales. Indulgencies such as Parfait of Foie Gras, Raisin Sec en Gelée de Madère and Quail’s Eggs Maintenon avec Sauce Hollandaise, Grilled Dover Sole à la Salamander with Sauce Tartare and Creamed Potatoes as well as the Wheeler’s of St. James’s renowned Classic Fish Pie with Buttered Garden Peas. There is always an abundant selection of delicious crowd-pleaser puddings as well as a choice of the finest English Cheeses served with Branston Pickle. And should anyone wish to stay a little longer, there is competitively-priced en-suite accommodation waiting to be taken advantage of and enjoyed. Marco’s quality table d’hôte menu is packed full of the best Marco Pierre White Wheeler’s of St. James’s staples, currently priced at £13.50 for two courses or £16.50 for three! The Angel’s stunning Wheeler’s Sunday Lunch three-course menu is even more fantastic value at £21.95! Or try the Wheeler’s Sunday Supper which includes dishes like Omelette Arnold Bennett with Sauce Mornay for Starters, Main Courses such as South Downs Lamb with Gratin Dauphinoise or the absolute classic Wheeler’s of St. James’s Fish & Chips.

Perspectives Autumn/Winter Collection | 119 artwork on the walls. Every dish which appears on a Wheeler’s menu is his own creation. Known in the trade as The Godfather, Marco is relentless in his mission for spotting and fostering talent, innate talent such as that displayed every time I chat with Emma! The new Horatio Inns Group, despite still being very much in its infancy, is already making its mark in the Eastern counties and Marco, together with his invaluable management team, are working long hours to make the new business both viable and profitable by ensuring that only the best staffing teams are put in place at each of the Group’s six pub/hotel/restaurants (five in Norfolk and Suffolk and one in Wiltshire). Group Operations Director Tristan McEwan comments “We are all fired up and ready to put these four fantastic venues in particular back on the map and we are really looking forward to getting them all started but please bear with us a little while longer as we make the necessary improvements which might just occasionally involve a little dust and chaos!” The exceptional value-for-money and hospitality experience which Marco is bringing to the table with his Wheeler’s of St. James’s Inns is surprising many. So surprising in fact that guests return as well as spread the word. The formidable and reliable brands of Marco Pierre White and Wheeler’s of St. James’s, combined with the experience and professionalism of a top management team, create unique and exciting opportunities for everyone involved in the new Horatio Inns Group of pubs, hotels and restaurants. It is clear that Marco makes many of his decisions based on personal taste. He favours real ales and ciders to lager and, whilst he encourages his chefs to source local ingredients wherever possible, quality remains paramount. At the launch party for The Angel barrels of Marco’s own ale, The Governor, were enjoyed well into the night (as were copious amounts of bubbly!)... possibly accounting for the fantastic atmosphere both inside and outside the building!

• The Angel Hotel, Lavenham, Suffolk • The Lifeboat Inn, Thornham, Norfolk • The Old Coach House, Thornham, Norfolk • The Pear Tree Inn, Whitley, Wiltshire The long-term vision for Horatio Inns is to develop a portfolio of freehold premium country inns and small boutique hotels across the UK. At least four out of the first six will be trading under the established Wheeler’s of St. James’s brand with all six in time completely refurbished to reflect the unique personality and style of Marco Pierre White. One girl left Lavenham that night impressed, entranced and perhaps even enthralled not only by the enfant terrible himself but by having met with the most charming of gentlemen, a culinary genius and a true professional. Yes Marco has exceptionally high standards, yes he knows exactly what he wants and yes he knows exactly how he is going to get what he wants!

Unlike many of his contemporaries Marco controls the entire operation from the various teams involved to the
