Yes. The most direct way is to just move the
archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file from the old server
to the new and then build the archives on the new server with
bin/arch. If there are archives on both servers, just combine the
listname.mbox files.

It's a good idea to at least check the .mbox file with bin/cleanarch
before running bin/arch. Use the --help options on both commands for
more info.

You can also move the list (settings, membership, member options) by
moving the lists/listname/config.pck file.
