Old Town Discovery 119

The Old Town Discovery 119 is one of our most popular solo canoes and is designed for general purpose paddling such as touring, fishing and white water. If you do intend on using the Discovery 119 for white water paddling then we suggest fitting additional buoyancy. You can view our range of buoyancy products here.

The Discovery is made from Old Town's PolyLink construction and weighs in at 22.5kg which is a little heavier than the Old Town Pack which weighs 15kg.

Three Layer Polyethylene

The Old Town Discovery 119 is made from three Layer Polyethylene which has been used to manufacture canoes for decades. Made up of three layers, an inner layer of close cell foam is sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene ensuring that the canoe has superior strength and durability while still remaining buoyant. The three layer polyethylene provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.
