Old Town Discovery 158

The Old Town Discovery 158 is built for touring on lakes, rivers and canals. It is a perfect choice for families as it is easy to manoeuvre yet very stable due to its wide and stable hull.

There is plenty of space onboard the Discovery 158 with room for children to sit in with their parents or for an extra seat to be fitted. The 158 has plenty of storage space for day trips but for those looking at buying a canoe for longer trips would be more suited to the 169 model.

The Discovery is built from Old Towns PolyLink construction making it very durable. The Discovery's tough construction and reliability makes it a popular choice with activity centres.

The Discovery come standard with two wood/webbed seats, plastic gunwales, carry handles and ash carrying yoke and thwart.

Three Layer Polyethylene

The Old Town Discovery 158 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.
