The need for hi speed vessel in Indonesia is increasing by rapid economic growth in the region. In one hand this indicates high demand of passenger accommodation for public transport and services. On the other hand, facilities and transportation services are not optimal yet, especially for inter-island hi speed vessel that require relatively long travel times, better, safer and more comfortable for passenger facilities and services. The aims of the current study are the design, engineering, and prototyping sleeper seats for modern inter-island hi speed vessel, equipped with digital information systems and passenger entertainment, to replace cubical room system (cabin accommodation). The research method is the application of Integrated Digital Design (CAD-CAM-CAE) as design as built, covering study of geometry, ergonomics, human factors engineering, construction, materials, and integrated engineering analysis. The later includes finite element analysis through digital prototypes. For the next step involves manufacturing, prototyping, testing, and certification. The results are engineering design, prototype of inter-island Hi Speed Vessel's Sleeper Seat and state of the art technology in Integrated Digital Design, digital prototyping, certification (SNI), and Intellectual Property Rights (patent, industrial design right, and branding).
