Old Town Discovery 119

The Old Town Discovery 119 is a solo canoe that is compact and easy to use. It is a brilliant option for if you are new to the sport, or simply wanting a convenient canoe to use as your go-to boat for a wide range of paddling types. A short length, at just sub 12 foot, and a moderate amount of rocker makes for an easy to paddle boat. A central wood-webbed seat puts you in a perfect position to aid with the boat's manoeuvrability.

The Discovery 119 is fantastic for paddling on lakes, rivers, canals, and estuaries due to its relaxed easy to use nature. It also has plenty of space for taking kit with you so although it is predominantly favoured and used as a canoe for day trips, it is possible to use the Discovery 119 for longer overnight trips. Old Town also states that it is one of the few model options that is suited to pair with a longer double ended kayak paddle, which massively broadens the range of people that can use the Discovery 119! It is a stable, versatile platform to use for whatever adventure you may have planned.

A compact size of the Discovery 119 and triple layer construction pair together to strike a balance between a tough material and a lightweight boat. You can load, carry and move the Discovery 119 with ease when you're off the water. This helps to simplify the process of getting yourself to the water and potentially removing the need for a second person to help you load your canoe onto the car. However, if you are accompanied by a friend, there are built in bow and stern handles so that it can be carried easily with two people. The construction and design of the Discovery 119 boasts strength and sturdiness, thanks to the tough triple layer material and two thwarts, so you can confidently use the Discovery 119 in a range of conditions. This tough construction is especially helpful if you decide to use the Discovery 119 for white water paddling.

This really is a boat that you can use as your go-to solo canoe and is a very good all-round option. The Discovery 119 has the ability to do anything from take your dog or young one out for a long flat water paddle, an overnight trip, and even on white water adventures!
