Investigators believe Ms Boyle may have broken her neck and died while entering her room, according to local news website sanremonews.it.
Ms Boyle, from Notting Hill, west London, had substantial experience work experience in the industry and had began working on the Malta-registered yacht, La Polonia, just one week previously.
According to witnesses, Ms Boyle watched the England v Colombia clash onboard the ship but later visited a bar near the port with crew members from another nearby yacht, the Dynamic.
After returning, the gang then jumped into hot tub on La Polonia where they continued to drink alcohol.
Rebecca, described as drowsy and staggering, was accompanied back to her cabin by colleagues who then left her.
