Superyacht Leaves Greek Port 5 Days After Australian Model’s Death Onboard

The superyacht investigated by Greek authorities after the death of 20-year-old Australian crew member Sinead McNamara has left port, suggesting there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the tragic incident.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports the Mayan Queen IV has departed the port of Argostoli in Kefalonia, five days after McNamara was rushed to hospital in a critical condition. McNamara, a model and Instagram influencer from Port Macquarie, died in hospital shortly after.

Citing a source with close knowledge of the investigation, the SMH reports an autopsy is yet to be completed, but there are currently no indications of foul play or suspicious circumstances.

Crew members have been interviewed by authorities, who also accessed CCTV footage taken onboard the vessel before it was allowed to depart. Investigations by Greek port authorities are expected to continue.

The yacht is owned by Alberto Baillères, a Mexican mining mogul with a reported net worth of US $9.5 billion. Baillères and his family are thought to have left the vessel 48 hours before McNamara was discovered.
