Rudders are kind of important. Aside from the saftey concerns, there is a good chance that, even if it never breaks, there will be some annoying performance issue you will hate after you get to know her, like maybe never being able to fully balance the helm. I would inspect the entire assembly on the interior. It appears someone is not being straight which makes me want to walk. If there is a lie about the impact I would walk as who knows what other BS you have been told. If it was truly this way from the factory I would walk. I would never want a yacht where no care was taken to such an important piece. If something visible is shoddy, imagine what lurks where you can't see?
There are a frigtening amount of boats for sale, keep moving.
