The cause of her death remains unclear, with many outlets reporting conflicting stories about the circumstances in which she was found.

Just five days ago on Facebook, Ms McNamara posted a selection of photos with her big sister Lauren, writing "happy birthday to the most awesome big sister I could ever ask for, 5 days till I get to see you!"

She used her Instagram following to post pictures of her travels and the luxurious life she lived. Her body, which was noticed by a passing boat, the fisherman, was "full of ropes".

McNamara had been working for four months as a crew member on the £108m Mayan Queen IV, owned by 87-year-old mining tycoon Alberto Bailleres.

Sinead last posted five days ago from Komitata, Kefalonia in Greece while jet skiing "around the most attractive turquoise water in the med".

Sinead McNamara, a 20-year-old Instagram model from Australia, has been found dead on a billionaire's superyacht in Greece.

She posted on Facebook on August 26: "Happy birthday to the most incredible big sister I could ever ask for, 5 days till I get to see you!" One of her friends said "My camping buddy and twin!"

Mr Bailleres is believed to have spent the past few weeks holidaying with relatives on the boat but disembarked last Tuesday to fly home to Mexico City, leaving the crew to their own devices, according to local media.

"I have unfortunately received the worst news of my life, (Sinead) has passed away", the social media star's brother, Jake McNamara, said according to Daily Mail.

Sharing an image of herself on a quad bike, she added: "Take me back to this where my only worry was not cracking my skull open".

"Our souls were so perfectly aligned we were convinced we were the same person. I can't explain how much I'm going to miss you or how broken I am". "Life is so precious gone way too soon". Will cherish all our memories.

"Rest In Peace. Sending all my love to you and your family", commented another.
