An investigation is under way into the final hours of a NSW model who died after an incident on a billionaire’s superyacht in the Mediterranean.

Greek police probing the death of an Australian model and Instagram influencer whose body was found aboard a Mexican billionaire’s luxury yacht in Greece over the weekend, do not believe her death was suspicious.

Sinead McNamara, 20, originally from Port Macquarie in northern NSW, had been working onboard the Mayan Queen IV superyacht for about four months when she died on board the ship.

The 92-metre yacht, owned by 87-year-old mining magnate Alberto Baillères, will remain docked at the port of Argostoli, on the Ionian island of Kefalonia, under orders from the Hellenic Coast Guard as detectives interview the other crew members and conduct forensic tests.

Local media has reported a crew member found Ms McNamara’s body on the back of the boat on Friday and alerted port authorities.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of Ms McNamara’s death.

Greek police said only crew remain on the yacht and it’s understood members of the Baillères family had already returned to Mexico.

Greek authorities are still investigating the death, but told The Sunday Times they do not believe her death was due to foul play.

Only days before her death, the model was posting snaps for her 18,000 Instagram followers, including shots of the scenic Greek islands and bikini shots aboard the super yacht.

Followers have expressed their grief and condolences to the influences’ family and friends on her final post.

Four days ago, Ms McNamara posted that she was jet skiing around “the most beautiful turquoise water” in the region.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to Ms McNamara’s family.
