Gulet categories

Categorization is one of the most important things in WORLD GULET ASSOCIATION. The main reasons for making unique categorization are:

- standardization of gulet offer
- better marketing options for gulets
- protection of customers (guests)
- increase of income
- quality control of services

While categorization in hotel business varies from one country to another, the standards in gulet business are very unified. However there is no official categorization to clear which gullets belongs to each category.
That is why WGA Group has set its own independent  category standards which is our own personal opinion on gullets set regarding our experience and gulet expertise.

We have decided to put Gulets in WGA in 4 different categories:

Best gullets in the worlds 6 stars ****** (100 – 90 points)
Delux - VIP Gulets – 5 stars ***** (89 – 80 points)
Luxury Gulets – 4 stars **** (79 – 65 points)
Standard Gulets *** (64 – 50 points)
Economy Gulets ** (49 – 0 points)

The main criteria in WGA when it comes to categories are:

GULET CONSTRUCTION (15 points)
QUALITY OF MATERIALS AND AESTHETICS DEMANDS: (10 points)
WATER SUPLY: (5)
AIR CONDITIONING: (10)
VENTILATION: (5)
CABINS: (10)
JOINT AREA: (size, equipment) (10)
FOOD SERVICES: (10)
PERSONNEL: (15)
EXTRA EQUIPMENT: (10)

According to these criteria, every gulet receives points for quality (CATEGORIZATION RATIO) and the more points are gathered, the better evaluation it gets.
Putting categorization aside, every gulet has its own qualities. Even though it is a economy type gulet, this does not mean that it is low in quality or in a bad condition.

Gulets are put in 5 different categories.  Choose your category and we will give you a couple of offers for a category you have interest in. Price is also depending regarding which period you are interested in. These are prices per person, not including full board and transfer rates from airport to gulet and back.
