Old Town, ME – March 7, 2019 – Old Town is proud to unveil its innovative new solo canoe, the Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman. Combining the best of both worlds, this hybrid canoe, packed with fishing and hunting-specific features, offers the simplicity and utility of a classic solo canoe with the agility and sleek handling of a kayak. The super stable design and lightweight body presents the perfect easy-to-transport watercraft for a day of fishing or hunting.
“With the Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman we’ve designed a unique solo sporting craft packed with purposeful features for avid anglers and waterfowl hunters. Weighing just 54 lbs. and measuring 11’ 9” in length, it’s easy to handle on and off the water,” explains Ryan Lilly, Brand Manager of Johnson Outdoors Watercraft. “With the iconic hull durability synonymous with the Discovery Series, and the approachable price point of $899.99, this boat delivers extraordinary value in a durable lightweight package. It’s a must have addition to any angler or hunter’s watercraft arsenal,” says Lilly.
Drawing on over 120 years of rich canoe building craftsmanship, the Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman is a cutting edge take on one of Old Town’s most beloved solo canoes, the Discovery 119. The Solo Sportsman features exceptional comfort and stability, with a kayak-style contoured seat complete with an adjustable backrest and a built-in cup holder. Padded armrests and adjustable foot braces provide multi-purpose functionality and customization.
Sporting features for the avid hunter and angler, the Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman includes two flush mount rod holders, a recessed thwart accessory track for complete customization, and molded in-tray storage for tackle and shotgun shells. The open and spacious hull provides ample storage for decoys, rods, tackle, and a trusted bird dog.
This innovative new Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman, with a lifetime hull warranty, provides the platform necessary to fight fish, set decoys, and spend more time in the outdoors. To learn more about the new Discovery 119 Solo Sportsman, visit oldtowncanoe.com/solosportsman.
