Since the reveal of the Tesla Cybertruck, engineers have created offerings to elevate the vehicle. Amongst those is the Cybercat, which turns the Cybertruck into an elite, battery-powered catamaran.

American materials scientist Anthony Diamond developed the Cybercat accessory that sees the all-electric vehicle outrigged with a pair of attachable pontoons and outboard motors. The Cybercat installation or breakdown can be done easily by one person in less time than it takes to launch a boat. Since all components of the catamaran can be collapsed into various moving parts, the pieces can be conveniently stowed away in the Cybertruck vault.

With the help of interconnecting sensors, power/data connections and pontoon pressure transducers, the Cybercat digitally verifies whether or not the pieces are properly assembled before it allows the vehicle to touch the water. The features of the inflatable pontoons give the Cybercat 12” of ground clearance. Once it hits the water, the electric outboard motors, pontoons and hydrofoils fold down while the wheels retract, allowing for quick takeoff. Diamond’s catamaran conversion kit features two pontoons and five 50 kW outboard motors that are expected to reach over 25 mph.

The design is currently patent pending but those interested can make a reservation on CyberCatamaran.
