After the death of Syned MacNamara, the whole truth about the life of flight attendants on superyachts was revealed.
A 20-year-old Australian Instagram model, Syned MacNamara, died while working as a member of the crew of a Mayan Queen IV for $ 190 million moored in a port on the Greek Islands.
In the months preceding her death, the young model did not seem to have a life, but a dream - she fluttered from island to island, working on board the ship of one of the richest people in the world, the Mexican billionaire Alberto Bylers.
But behind the glamorous posts in social networks there is a black reality in which people use drugs, secretly bring prostitutes on board, and the hostesy work around the clock without sleep and rest.
Former employees have lifted the veil of secrecy over that side of the industry where only wear and tear work is constant.
Australian stewardess Sarah Begbie admitted that she was not ready for the exhausting work she encountered on board the yacht.

Australian women said that they worked all day long, having only 4 hours a day to sleep.

Australian hostess Sarah Begby set sail on a superyacht in 2014, when her boyfriend, who worked on a luxury ship, said that their company was recruited by staff.
She could not imagine how exhausting this work was, and that an absurd number of hours a day would have to work and sleep in a “prison cell.”
The longest break in her 16-hour workday was two minutes. It was assumed that she should serve clients until late at night.
These photos appeared after the tragic and premature death of an Australian Instagram-model and flight attendant Sined MacNamar on a superyacht in the Greek port.
Sarah’s duties as a hostess were to keep the living quarters clean and tidy, and to serve up to 16 demanding guests in terms of food and drinks.
“I never imagined how hard this work was,” says Sarah.
“I started work at 6 am, and usually it was a 16-18 hour working day. We worked all the time and could not even sit down for more than 2 minutes. ”

The crew rooms were so small that only one person could change clothes at a time.
A little about the work of Sarah Begbie hostesses on superyachts:
Sarah Begbie started working on superyachts at the age of 23.
She spent a year and a half on the 50-meter Trinity yacht with her boyfriend
Thanks to her work, she traveled to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Burma.
A private chef prepared food worthy of five star hotels for guests and crew members.
But the crew worked to wear 16 hours a day.
Sometimes her longest break did not exceed two minutes.
The couple lived in a tiny cabin, which Sarah called the "prison cell."
After midnight, she served desserts and snacks to guests, and got up at dawn in the morning to serve breakfast.

Billionaire owners advertise work on their yachts as an opportunity to have a good time (in the photo, the yacht "Mayan Queen IV").
Other hostesses also deliver guests drinks until 3 am, and then, after several hours of sleep, they get up to serve breakfast.
In these few hours of sleep, their cabins are full of people.
In the memo distributed by employers,it says about the constant rotation around the owners and guests of the yacht and that everyone who is engaged in this work must put aside their own desires.
Tracy Zarovski from Sydney also worked on superyachts and traveled in Europe for 7 years.
She says that even though the work and gave her the opportunity to travel the world, yet the industry itself is quite cruel.
“The demands are very high. I know one girl, she was a bit plump, and the owner of the yacht did not like it, as a result of which she was fired, ”says Tracy Zarovski.
Other flight attendants agree and say that they have been instructed to shut their eyes to the obscene behavior of the guests and to ignore the appearance of prostitutes on board.
Another girl said that the prostitutes on board were common, but drug use shocked more, once she found the billionaire owner literally with a needle in a vein.
Hostess says that she was forced to continue working when she was sick with bronchitis, and when the Russian guest threw tea into her face, because he did not like the drink.
But Dana Brown from New South Wales said that she enjoyed this year on a luxury yacht, despite the fact that customers needed a service at the highest level.
Brown says that the worst of her experience is to engage in a wasteful lifestyle, earning thousands, and you are wasting all at once.
The competition for jobs on yachts has greatly increased in recent years, and some accuse Instagram accounts of extolling what may actually be a grueling job.
However, in Australian newspapers nothing is said about drugs, indecent behavior, prostitution or exploitation of workers on the yacht “Mayan Queen IV”.
