Yasmin and Soki Go Sailing Mamboat Style

Posted on July 12, 2012

What happens when you take two rising stars in the world of music and fashion out on a Mamboat for the day? Essentialibiza caught up with chart topping singer/ songwriter/ DJ Yasmin and best friend and prominent fashion stylist Soki Mak on board Saphire, one of the two luxurious mastercrafts owned by Mamboats. The boat glides out of the San Antonio marina as the introductions are dispersed with and before long the throttle is fully engaged, the boat front rises out of the water and the powerful engines set us on our way around the coast.

Cala Salada is the first port of call, the boat swings to the right, makes it’s way between the huge rock formation and the cliff before easing into the bay slowly and dropping anchor. As the rest of the crew dived into the clear blue water, we grabbed a quick chat with Yasmin…

Yasmin:
What are you in Ibiza for this time round?
I DJ’d and performed at Judgement Sundays at Eden last night! It was wicked, I was on after Judge Jules, he’s a hard act to follow but I had a great time, the crowd were wicked and I got to play loads of old school house and garage.

When can we hear new music from you?
I have an EP coming out in the next few months, five brand new tracks, remixes and videos coming soon!

You’ve just launched a jewellery range, tell us about it?
It’s a collaboration with Italian designer Gogo Philip, I wear his stuff all the time, Leeann introduced me to it and after being a big fan of his work, he asked me to collaborate on a collection, it launches in Topshop, Selfridges and ASOS on July 25.

Cala Salada is one of Ibiza’s cooler coves, not a major tourist attraction but a great spot for those in the know to enjoy a peaceful day out in the sun. As we swim around the boat we are surrounded by schools of fish, not in the slightest bit intimidated by our presence. In fact, as we enjoy some lunch before heading off, any bread crumbs that make it overboard are keenly fought for. With both us and the fish well fed, it’s time to turn the boat around and head back towards Sunset Strip and café Mambo for the sunset.

The Café Mambo sunset is a spiritual experience that we have experienced on numerous occasions but never from the comfort of the leather seats of the Mamboat. It’s the second day of the 123 Festival, pitched on the waste ground to the side of Sunset Strip and as we arrive, with the sun starting to disappear beneath the horizon, we can see on the huge screens that Elton John has taken centre stage and is about to play. The bars on the strip all turn their music down and everyone settles down to listen to Elton. As the champagne is popped and poured, Elton starts singing ‘Your Song’ and it’s time to put Soki Mak in the spotlight…

As a professional stylist, what are your impressions of Ibiza style?
Ibiza style is very laid back and cool but I love their eveningwear… always white, it just gives a sense of glamour!

What’s hot and what’s not for this summer?
I’m a true believer in wearing whatever you like no matter if its last season or five seasons ago! I hate style pages in magazine’s that are trying to clone everyone into dressing the same. However, a definite no-no to me is wearing flip flops to a bar/club. I noticed this few times in Ibiza.

When you go out do you get to switch off and ignore what people are wearing or are you constantly evaluating?
I’m always looking and admiring what people wear! I wouldn’t say I evaluate but it’s definitely nice to see other people experimenting with their image. What I love the most is in Ibiza Town, everyone makes an effort to look their very best and they look so effortlessly glamorous and healthy.

As the sun finally disappears beneath the horizon the beats in Café Mambo start up again as the legendary beach bar gets everyone prepared for Monday night I Ibiza. For us, it’s time to take the Mamboats in and for the last time the giant motors burst into life and we speed off into the distance, leaving the strip to disappear behind us. This is our second adventure in the Mamboats, both completely different and there is talk of adding a Benirras experience to the packages that they offer. We really can’t stress enough how much this has to be a part of your holiday. For literally the price of a club ticket you can have a day that you’ll never forget but don’t take our word for it, listen to Yasmin and Soki Mak…

What are your impressions of the Mamboats experience?
Yasmin:
I LOVE the Mamboats! It was the highlight of my trip after my gig, we got to swim, watch the sunset and sip champagne, what more could you want?
Soki Mak:
Mamboats is an amazing idea, I’ve been wanting to go out on a boat the last few times I’ve been in Ibiza but had no idea how to go about it. It’s also very affordable and it helps that the guys that run it are young and easygoing. I’ve already been planning with my friends the next trip and we’re definitely contacting Essentialibiza to hook us up with Mamboats again!
