Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, that is permissible. 

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said: 

If you have a half-sister from your father, then it is permissible for you to marry her half-sister from her mother, because there is no relationship between you and her half-sister from her mother that would prevent that. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  

“All others are lawful”

[al-Nisa’ 4:24]

al-Muntaqa, 5/258. 

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) narrated that the Muslims were unanimously agreed that this kind of marriage is permissible. He said: It is permissible for a man’s half-sister from his mother to marry his half-brother from his father. This is unanimously agreed upon among the Muslims and there is no dispute concerning that. And Allaah knows best. 

From al-Fataawa al-Kubra, 3/163.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
