This 1961 Chris Craft is expected to fetch as much as $150,000 when it’s auctioned next month in Fort Lauderdale.

Over the Top, a 21-foot 1961 Chris-Craft Continental, will be at Auctions America’s Fort Lauderdale sale from April 1-3.

Reported to be among only 96 built and one of only about a dozen known to exist today, Over the Top has undergone a restoration. More than $100,000 has been invested.

A 2015 International Boat Show winner, the boat is offered with a copy of the Chris-Craft runabout equipment record of its October 1960 build and accompanied by a new custom tandem-axle trailer and a waterline mooring cover.

It’s estimated that the boat will bring between $125,000 and $150,000. Its full catalog description is available at http://bit.ly/1VBWU0r.
