About Truebuild Yachts

Gene Kohlman PortraitI formed Managed Data Services in the early 90’s to provide consulting services and       information technology to manufacturing companies. The business has grown into Truebuild Yachts owing to a lifelong associations with yachts.

I have over 35 years of experience in the marine industry.  30 years of that experience is in yacht building in an executive role with yacht builders that built over 7000 boats during my time with them.  These builders are Ericson Yachts, Pacific Seacraft, Nordhavn, and Northwest Trawlers among others.

Builders of large yachts generally get the major things correct, but are challenged by the growing complexity of customization, system integration and the number of features on a modern yacht to achieve “zero defect” execution of the hundreds of details that ultimately have a significant effect on the experience for buyers and builders of new yachts.

In an effort to increase the enjoyment and effectiveness of the purchase, build, delivery and ownership experience for all stakeholders, Truebuild Yachts focuses its work with yacht buyers and yacht builders through two principle consulting services:

Yacht Buyer Advocacy Services
Yacht Builder Consultancy
Software for Yacht Sellers, Builders and Repairers

Radical New Ways to Increase Value for Buyers and Builders of New Yachts

"Best Yacht"  Projects
