From 'Flexcit':

EFTA membership for the UK would have its own advantages, allowing it to tap into extensive consultation arrangements with the EU,without having to develop entirely new structures. If desired, it would also give it access to thefree trade areas to which the Association is party. Furthermore, the resultwould be a significant trading group, putting it fourth in the world league after China ($3,642bn) and ahead of Japan ($1,678bn).What might be termed,"EFTA-plus UK" would be a significant global player.
I don't deny that, what I doubt is that when we've 'got divorced' (left the EU) the other party will be happy to still be 'friends with benefits' (stay in/rejoin EFTA).
