    It's called a slip, which is located in a marina or pier, or whatever vernacular thereof.

    It might be called a dry dock, for ships or boats that aren't being decommissioned but are temporarily out of use (maybe over the winter), or are undergoing routine maintenance. Or, it could be your boat's slip in the marina  where you usually tie up your boat when it's not in use.

    A mothball and decommissioning harbor like the US Navy one near the Oakland CA ship yards called the "Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet", one can assume it would be called a "ship mooring harbor" or a decommissioned "mothballed naval fleet storage" river estuary area.

    Dry dock is when the boat is completely out of the water for maintenance or repairs or storage. Some or just kept in a marina (in the water) in a spot they either own or lease from the marina.

    Marina storage or dry dock.

    A marina, perhaps.  Many marinas have space for storing boats on land.  Boat storage is a word pair for land-storage of boats during winter.  There are not many places whose sole reason for existence is storage of boats in the off-season.  Most places offer some other marine services or storage services that just happen to include boat storage.  What do you call a place where we store cars when not in use?  A car park, probably. Not a specific word for that either.
