Old Town Discovery 158


The Old Town Discovery 158 is a classic Canadian Canoe. This canoe allows paddlers to develop their canoeing skills as the hull is responsive when paddled solo or tandem. The Old Town Discovery 158 requires a little more skill to be paddled well but this marks this canoe out as suitable for flat and white water.


Often seen fitted with air bags and bouncing off rocks in white water but equally at home on the smoothest lake. If the Old Town Discovery 158 is not quite big enough for your needs look at the Discovery 169.


The Old Town Discovery 158 has a tough triple layer hull with a foam core so the 158 is a positively buoyant Canadian canoe. Used and abused the Old Town Discovery 158 is a firm favourite with canoeists.

Old Town Dicovery 158 materials

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.
