Old & Existing Design
The existing Clear Boat Hull designs on the market were never developed with the intention of passengers entering the water and reentering the boat from the water. As the demand for expanding the current clear boats on the market into a "snorkel excursion" boat was realized, it presented a huge liability to the safe operation of guests re-boarding the vessel while at anchor or adrift.
A layman solution was developed by constructing a boarding ladder that locks into the overhead canopy and or hangs off the side of the boat. The concept was to allow guests to climb out of the water, into the boat at the middle of the boat. However, this concept has not been successful and many guests who were not agile have slipped their leg or body through the step and between the ladder and the boat, causing injury. This maybe perhaps why no public video footage can be found of passengers re-entering the boat from the water.
Carafino 2024 has solved this liability by designing a small swim platforms at the transom of the 2024 Carafino Clear Boats, permitting guests a safer and easier method of re-boarding the vessel from the water.
The new 2024 Carafino Clear Boat board plateform concept is revealed to assure out clients that the importance of operational practicality are methodically thought out in all our design approaches.

About Our Passion
I am an innovator who has devoted my life to creating solutions to problems on a global and domestic scale driven by a "Blue Ocean Strategy" mindset with the intentions of "Category king" success for others. Developing basic improvements to day to day operations or permanent practical solutions that add value to various operations has always motivated me. However, I continue returning to aquatics and aquatic equipment development, because it keeps me young, happy and innovative. I love the ocean, white sandy beaches, blue clear waters, surf, sea and sun... and it is a great feeling to be tan, rested and ready and I appreciate people who value the same.
The ocean is my church and playground since a child, physically, mentally and spiritually cleansing my soul from the monotony of life's demands.
I have garnered my seamanship experience and hull design skills as a boat captain in Hawaii, the apex of watermen research and development training grounds. I am a United States Coast Guard Licensed Officer of vessels not more than 100 Gross Tons, to include Master Near Coastal of Aux Sail vessels since 1991, out of Honolulu sector, with additional civilian and military recognized endorsements. I am an avid catamaran sailor, kitesurfer, big wave tow in surfer, diver, free diver, snorkeler, swimmer and free spirit.
I invented the discipline of hydrofoil boarding and hydrofoil kitesurfing on Maui in 1999, because I wanted to out of passion for sharing the experience with others. Delivering the first production hydrofoil boards to the market in 2000. Currently, all of the leading brand name hydrofoil board products on the market today, have incorporated numerous Carafino design aspects from the original Carafino hydrofoil board products I innovated twenty years ago.
The business of tourism, in making guests (tourists) experience the true Aloha Spirit of feeling the warmth of being welcomed and providing Hawaiian Tropic memories to the guests that will last them a lifetime, is a quality that is second nature for me from my time working as a Waikiki Beach Boy. From surfing the biggest waves in Hawaii and the longest waves the world offers, to traveling the globe and experiencing the many oceans, cultures and colorful people of our great planet. I believe there are few greater pleasures than feeling truly welcomed wherever you visit. It is with "Spirit of Aloha" that I design the Carafino Clear Boats for the tourist of the world to experience. I also understand how important it is to have professionally tailored equipment in an ocean environment. Equipment you can trust and confidently know the performance to be at the level of professional. I know the importance of utilizing equipment as the responsible in charge for the safety and lives of others. The importance of this project is not about a fast sale but ensuring that everything has methodically been thought threw regarding operational safety and simplicity.
I have decades of experience in water sport product design and manufacturing and as a result of those qualities, I know what works. I have lived and worked in Asia for over 15 years, exporting my products and building a sales based relationships all over the world. I am specifically experienced in all aspects of product designing, engineering, tooling, sourcing, production line manufacturing, logistics and end user relationships. Everything I produce is designed around the product performance and quality demands of Hawaiian waters.
After water sports product design, I was attracted to military defense and identified opportunities to innovate solutions for (Mid East) U. S. Foreign Allies overseas, in 2016. Delivering cost saving permanent solutions for various branches of the military in maritime and the oil and gas sectors for Oman, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia domestic and environmental security. But my passion for tranquility and my love for the ocean brings me back to my fountain of youth, the beach and tourism adventure outings.
Currently, I am fully committed to the process of orchestrating the completion of a fabrication production line to deliver to the world the finest Carafino Clear Boats, designed to suit the safety, comfort and operational practicality that surpasses any other clear boat on the market.
