There aren't many like them now.

could you ever imagine a member of staff on any of the yachting magazines in the UK covering stuff like this
eating straight out of the ceral packet
paper plates on plastic ones
which yacht manufacturer would be prepared to take a full page advert up against an artical that included this sort of information.
Incredible stuff chaps
