How do you know something important is being built at HP shipyard?..........and if so what is it speculated to be?
This is just guessing and speculation. It could be that they are not cranking out anything, in which case they are wasting idle capacity.

It's funny that we have better images of Chinese YJ18 than we do of Russian made Klub or Kalibr variant of the weapon, even though the latter have been around for much longer. There are some mock up images around, of course, but those aren't necessarily accurate. And I still can't find a clear image of Antiship variant Klub/Kalibr from the side, to make a true comparison with this image.

So how long do you think the terminal rocket stage of the missile is? About 5 to 6 meters?

More like 2 meters.
I don't have numbers for russian rocket motors, but a Mk72 like booster will be enough to achieve the desired velocity. Mk72 is 0.51m in diameter, 1.7m in length.
