That rudder is shot... and probably a deal breaker.
However, it really depends on the condition of the rest of the boat and what the price is. If the rest of the boat is solid, which I doubt based on the rudder, and the price is low enough to compensate you for the time, cost and aggravation of replacing the rudder, then it may not be a deal breaker.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
