The Team

Marine Engine Surveyor Florida, Ryan Kruger, Kruger Survey and Engineering


Engineer by education with a degree in Engineering from the University of Florida received in 2002. I have been mechanically engaged with engines since my teenage years and in 2019 my passion for engines led me to the full-time career of surveying marine engines. To bring a unique engineering oriented thought process to the inspection is always the goal.

It is imperative that a Marine Engine Surveyor have the proper education, experience, and mechanical knowledge of the engines.

I am a recognized Surveyor Associate with The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors®


Technical writer with an undergraduate degree in engineering from Auburn University pursuing further engineering education and research through a master’s program from the same university. She has experience with web content and content writing and is responsible for compiling the engine survey inspection into a comprehensive, neat and easy-to-read report.


Marine Engine Survey

A necessity to determine the boat's seaworthiness and condition.

Marine Engine Diagnostic

Essential to know and understand the engine's history, issues and overall condition of the engine.

Bore Scope Analysis

Inspecting portions of the engine such as after cooler, intake manifold area, and the cylinder bore if accessible.


Thermal imaging is ideal for observing temperature anomalies that are abnormal in machinery and electrical equipment.

Engineer Oriented Reporting

Integrating timely reports in most cases by next business day.

Generator Survey

Performing generator surveys when purchasing a vessel thus ensuring you know the current state all the mechanical systems before you make the purchase.

Report Proceedure

Report Proceedure
Kruger Survey & Engineering employs a special four stage report development procedure to ensure clients receive quality, accurate reports in a prompt manner. First, details are handwritten. Second, these handwritten notes are sent to a technical writer to be compiled into a neat, easy-to-read report. In the third stage of the report production process, after typing up the report, the writer proofreads it thoroughly. Finally, in the fourth stage, Ryan Kruger himself puts the finished report through a final extra round of comprehensive proofreading to check for errors and ensure a quality product.
