The Rotork Sea Truck is a flat-hulled, high-speed watercraft, similar to a small landing craft. Made from fibreglass, they may be used to land vehicles without jetties or harbour facilities. They were designed by the design team at Smallfry led by designer Tim Fry and Anthony Smallhorn with input from James Dyson whilst he was a student in the 1970s, as part of his final year's project at the Royal College of Art. Jeremy Fry was co-designer.
The Sea Truck won a Design Council award, and in 1979 the Series 5 Sea Truck, credited to the Rotork Marine Design team with Tim Fry and Anthony Smallhorn of Smallfry Ltd. as consulting designer won the Prince Philip Designers Prize. There were 5 versions of the Sea Truck. Jeremy Fry invented the original Sea Truck and the Mark2 version. Dyson as a student was involved in the Mark 3 . The Mark 5 designed under John Fry by Mike Ross and styled by Tim Fry and Anthony Smallhorn won the design award.
