Australian Instagram Model Found Dead On Billionaire's Yacht In Greece

An investigation has been launched after an Australian model was found dead on a 'super yacht' in Greece.

Sinead McNamara, an Instagram model who lived in Sydney, was found dead aboard the Mayan Queen IV, a yacht owned by billionaire Alberto Bailleres, one of the richest men in Mexico.

The 20-year-old had been working on the boat, which cost £108 million, for the past four months, as it sailed around Europe. She updated her followers of her adventures, with photos taken at a bunch of stunning locations.

Authorities in Greece have now launched an investigation into the sudden and tragic death. The boat's crew have been told they must remain in the port of Argostoli while the investigation begins, news.com.au reports.

According to local media, the boat was anchored off the island of Kefalonia on Tuesday last week and Bailleres left the ship. Two days later he returned, and Sinead's body was found.

In Kefalonia reported that the Coast Guard will begin an investigation into the death and carry out an autopsy.

The Australian reports that 'frantic efforts' were made by the crew to try and revive the woman, and she was flown to hospital in a helicopter, however, she pronounced dead later that day.


Her father, and other family members, have reportedly flown out to make arrangements for the body to be sent back to Australia.

Her brother Jake said: "I have unfortunately received the worst news of my life, Sinead has passed away.

"We are all coming to terms with it and at present I don't want to speak to anyone but family."

Friends have taken to social media to pay tribute to the model, with one writing: "Life is so precious gone was too soon. Such a beautiful human being. Will cherish all our memories. Rest in Peace you beautiful soul".

Another wrote: "It was only a few days ago you were messaging me forcing me to come camping with you. You're such a gorgeous girl lost way to soon."

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) told the news outlet: "DFAT is providing consular assistance to the family of an Australian who died in Greece."
