The Six Largest Super Yachts You'll See at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show runs through this weekend. And while the show exhibits all kinds of boats and water crafts, the main attraction are going to be the yachts.

Fort Lauderdale is the Yacht Capital of the World, so it's only appropriate that the show carries not only yachts, but SUPER yachts. What are super yachts, exactly? Are they yachts injected with gamma rays? Yachts that get their power from the yellow sun? Yachts that fight crime?

Not really. They're merely yachts. Only bigger. And pricey-er. And more awesome.

Here now are the six largest super yachts you'll be able to gawk at during the boat show this weekend. And, if you have the means, maybe you'll buy yourself a couple:
