Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Future Beach
Model:
Discovery 124F
MSRP ($):
399.99
Length (ft):
10.5

The Discovery 124F is a 10'4” sit on top kayak that is aimed specifically at angling enthusiasts. To make your time out on the water more enjoyable, the Discovery features a dihedral hull, which enhances its stability and will give you more confidence while casting out. It is a single seater and weighs in at 47.4 lbs while its capacity is in the range of 300 lbs.

The Discovery features front, rear as well as side carry handles, which makes the task of getting it to and from the water a little easier. It has quite a sizeable gear well in the rear, complete with bungees to keep your stuff secure. What makes the rear gear well even more interesting is the fact that it has plenty of space for a milk crate, complete with molds to keep it from sliding around, but also a recessed mold for a five gallon bucket, which is a nice touch. Anglers who are interested in using a bucket as a livewell in particular will appreciate this feature. In the rear you’ll also find a round hatch that goes down into the hull and offers additional storage space. Lastly, the Discovery has 2 flush mount rod holders that are located just behind the seat.

Moving on to the seating area, the Discovery unfortunately does not have a swivel rod holder, so adding your own one will require some DIY modifications. The seat features a pretty low backrest and while it isn’t the most comfortable for extended periods, it does get the job done. If you regularly spend a lot of time out on the water fishing it might be worthwhile to looking for something a bit more comfortable. In front of the seat you’ll find molded-in cup holders as well as the foot wells. Unlike many other fishing kayaks, the foot wells in the Disvoery are not adjustable, but graduated. This is an advantage for anglers who find themselves regularly changing the position of their feet as there is no need to constantly lean over and make adjustments. At the front of the kayak is another gear well with bungees to stow away any additional items like a tackle box.

Since the Discovery 124F sits pretty low on the water, it has good stability, but it is no slouch when it comes to tracking either despite its compact length. It would have been nice to have a paddle holder to secure the paddle when fishing, but unfortunately this is something else that will have to be added yourself. Ultimately, the Discover 124F has a lot to offer at a reasonable price, but lacks some of the extra features that would have made it even better. If you are not afraid to get your hands dirty and modify the kayak yourself it is worth it, but for beginners that want everything included in the price there are better options available.
